Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday, set up a task force with a mandate to devise a strategy to recover the N5 trillion owed to the Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).
The agencies tasked to go after the debtors are Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and the ministry of justice.
At the meeting that held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Muiz Banire, AMCON’s chairman, said the top 20 debtors owe 67% of the N5 trillion debt.
According to a list released by the corporation in October, here are AMCON’s top 20 debtors.

Note: There might be a slight difference to this list because Ahmed Kuru, AMCON’s executive director, says the corporation spent almost N1 trillion rescuing the now-defunct Skye Bank.
