The United Kingdom has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to return the sum of £4.2 million of stolen assets by Former Delta State Governor, James Ibori.
Laing said the money was recovered from friends and family members of the former Delta State governor.
She said the habit of siphoning money from Nigeria to the UK has affected the level of trust between the two countries.
Laing, however, warned that the UK will no longer be used as a destination for looters to siphon proceeds of crimes.
Ibori was Delta governor between 1999 and 2007. He was jailed 13 years in prison the UK for fraud in 2012 and had since served his time and returned to Nigeria.
KanyiDaily had also reported how British prosecutors seize dabout $39.3 million (30.8 million pounds) from a London lawyer, Bhadresh Gohil, who helped James Ibori in looting and laundering illegal funds from the Delta state.
