“Expeditious Handling:

“We are an international human rights law group conducting an anti-corruption investigation.

In light of the return of $311 million by the US to Nigeria last week and the likelihood that a family member of the interlocutor would be put in charge of the funds and potentially benefit financially as a result, we would like this responded to in a timely fashion.

“Thank you for your consideration.”
