Can I sue in the UK when been scammed in Nigeria?Under recommendation

Customer Question

Can I sue in the UK when been scammed in Nigeria?
Under recommendation to encourage investment by our Prime Minister after meeting with the Nigerian president Good luck Jonathan. Agreement was made to promote and encourage British investment. I invested about £200K and have had my partner arrested by the Economic Federal Crimes Commission. But released him after assuring payment etc. to again not meet his agreements.
But I am advised from the agreements with these Premiers that there is the procedure whereby I can sue him in the UK and the UK Government can recover from the Nigerian government. Is this true? If So how do I go about it etc
