Former Minister Diezani Madueke back To Magistrate Court In UK For Money Laundering & Bribery

(This page may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

The immediate past minister of petroleum resources, Mrs Diezani  Alison-Madueke will today, April 5, make a return to the Westminster Magistrate’s Court in London to answer for money laundering and bribery allegations.

Recall that she was arrested along with four others by the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency (NCA) over money laundering allegation.

She was first arraigned in the court last year October along with four others with £27,000 cash seized from her London apartment. She was granted bail.

The court ruled in October 2015 that the cash can be held for six months before she is arraigned after investigations.

The ex-minister’s siblings- Messrs Abiye Agama and Somye Agama operate some UK-based businesses that were hurriedly shut after the NCA and the EFCC searchlight became intense.

It is believed that the NCA is working in league with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in the probe of the former minister.

While Mrs Alison-Madueke was battling arrest in London, her Abuja home was raided by the EFCC while her partners were stalked by the Interpol in Switzerland.
