The Pandora Papers have implicated a total of ten Nigerian politicians.

The paper mentions at least eight African countries.

According to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, which revealed the shocking files on Sunday, the record includes 336 lawmakers in all.

The ‘Pandora Papers’ is a probe based on one of the largest-ever financial document dumps, which revealed a hidden world of guarded wealth belonging to hundreds of politicians and billionaires on Sunday.

The Pandora Papers, widely regarded as one of the largest ever worldwide media investigations, enlisted the help of over 600 journalists who analyzed over 11.9 million documents.

They discovered ties between roughly 1,000 offshore firms and 336 high-ranking politicians and government officials, including more than a dozen serving heads of state and government.

Five Côte d’Ivoire officials were allegedly helped by foreign operatives to hide money suspected of being robbed, according to an interactive map of the leaked documents.

Three politicians from Ghana are included in the records, which have been dubbed “an offshore data tsunami.”

Chad, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic of Congo Brazzaville and Gabon each have two officials included in the infamous documents that supposedly sent shivers down the spines of prominent people around the world.

Angola has nine politicians listed in the document, while Zimbabwe and South Africa have two each.

Mozambique has one.
