Theophilus Abbah

Theophilus Abbah, Nigeria

Investigative Journalist

Theophilus Abbah, editor of the Daily Trust on Sunday in Nigeria, discovered astonishing amounts of wasted money when checking on government projects to build clinics and power plants; navigated the creeks of the Niger Delta to find out the truth behind the vandalisation of multinational oil company pipelines; reported on the villages where Boko Haram recruits its soldiers; and exposed his country’s oil oligarchs who amass riches whilst citizens stay poor.
His latest endeavour is the in-depth exposure of corrupt syndicates in African state bureaucracies.
