Nigeria has received much more than $300m (£241m) that had been stolen by the former army ruler, Sani Abacha.

The income was returned from the US and the British dependency of Jersey.

Underneath a repatriation settlement it is to be spent on infrastructure initiatives.

Gen Abacha ruled Nigeria from 1993 until finally his dying in 1998.

The anti-corruption agency Transparency Worldwide estimates he stole as a great deal as $5bn all through his time in office.

Switzerland is thought to have returned around $1bn about the last ten years.
