According to Fowler, the figure is N1tn higher than the N2.9tn made in 2017.

“One hundred and fourteen companies claimed they were unaware of the land allocated to them, but the AGIS (Abuja Geographic Information System) has confirmed the ownership for all the cases referred to them and we will soon hand these cases over to the Attorney General of the Federation,” he said.
