The Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing: An Insight into The Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act of 2004, Laws of Nigeria


This work is divided into five chapters with the first giving a general overview of money laundering and terrorist financing with a focus on the nexus between money laundering and terrorist financing. It contains arguments that in the real sense, it is inappropriate to apply existing anti money laundering mechanisms to terrorist financing distilling from the assumption of an existing nexus. The second part sheds light on global efforts to combat money laundering and also domestic efforts via various established agencies to eradicate money laundering and terrorist financing. The third chapter analyses the Nigerian anti money laundering regimes as it has metamorphosed since 1989. Major provisions and differences are identified. The fourth chapter contains the effect of money laundering and terrorist financing, the weakness of the Nigeria anti money laundering regime. The fifth chapter proffers considerable solution, not just for an effective AML/CFT provisions but a practical strategy to curb corruption, a deep-rooted disease in the country.
