LIST of Prominent Nigerians Named in Panama Papers Scandal


The Panama Papers leak is the unprecedented leak of a whopping 11.5 million files from the database of the world’s fourth biggest offshore law firm, Mossack Fonseca.

The law firm had helped clients to register offshore entities, some of which are then used to launder money, evade tax and dodge sanctions.
