Theophilus Abbah

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.
