It’s been 20 years since the death of Nigerian military ruler Sani Abacha. We’ve had a look at the numbers – what he is reported to have looted, and what’s been recovered. Abacha remains a divisive figure in Nigeria – how do you remember him?
To mark the 20th anniversary of Sani Abacha’s death, BBC did a graphic illustration of the late general’s loot and how much of the money has been recovered by the Nigerian government.
General Sani Abacha was born in Kano state, northern Nigeria on the 20 September 1943.
On the 8th of June 1998 Abacha died from a suspected heart attack and is buried the same day. Nigeria transitions to democratic rule one year later.
