Oct 5, 2015 – Diezani’s Bribery & Money Laundering Trial In UK: EFCC Officials Set To Leave For London To Submit Documents Recovered From Diezani’s House In Abuja

The Presidency confirmed last night that the Department of State Service (DSS) was collaborating with the National Crime Agency (NCA) in Britain to get to the root of the bribery and money laundering allegations against the former Minister and four others, who are yet to be named.

The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, in an exclusive chat with our correspondent last night, said: “Nigeria is aware of the arrest of the ex- Minister; the government has been informed.

“The arms of government dealing with investigation, particularly the Department of State Service (DSS), are actively collaborating with the relevant agencies in the UK.”

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) plans to send a team to London to be part of the former minister’s trial.

Mrs Alison-Madueke, who is on bail, is expected to be charged to court in London for alleged money laundering and other related offences by the NCA.

The EFCC collaborated with the NCA in investigating Mrs Alison-Madueke in the last two years.

It was gathered that the EFCC made vital documents, including details of bank transactions of some of her business associates, available to the NCA.

The search on her residence on Friday was said to be the part of the concluding stage of the initial investigation.

A top source in EFCC said: “The arrest and the impending arraignment of Mrs Alison-Madueke have been a joint collaboration between the EFCC and the NCA.

“There is no way we will not be part of the trial. Definitely, we are sending a team to the UK but I cannot give you the details.

“If you recall, some of our investigators were in the UK during the trial of ex-Governor James Ibori. This practice will not be an exception in the trial of the ex-minister.

“We have documents to give to NCA; we have a lot to clarify in confidence. We are also ready to testify.”

  1. Mrs. Allison Madueke has come to be identified with the filthiest character ever a lady could ever exhibited and represented in womanhood. Its now becoming clearer the damage Jonathan’s administration visited on Nigeria through the appointments of looting brigades of mostly women of his tribal clans from his South/South & South/East enclave. If in the quest of Nigerian campaign’s fight against corruption; Dezieane Allison Madueke “a woman” could be so neck-deep in what looks like the biggest corruption scadal in the history of Nigeria.? It probably sends the death nail Nigeria has lost the fight against corruption and is doomed forever. Is anybody surprised the woes of the Biafran civil war is now manifesting in the womenfolks of that region, who could fearlessly and brazingly lead a ring of financial scandal without shame,? just as we have witnessed in the effect the war has had in the large army of marauding criminal minded youth from the same geo-political zone.? Allison Madueke may have forgotten there are no safe haven anymore anywhere in the world and if it was her aim to steal for her generations unborn, she should realise the millions of the legitimate owners of the collective wealth of the deprived youth back home in Nigeria will never give her children and those after them any respite in life. Allison Madueke is a disgrace to womanhood.

  2. Na good news wey we are hear. We go hear am again. Corruptility is a fooling in this contry Nigeria. I no go corrupt at all if I am rule this contry. And I go rule this contry one days.

  3. Am so happy to hear this. Let all the selfish leaders who have wickedly looted this country thereby creating Unemployment and other economic problem for the masses be made to return all fund and be gravely dealt with.

  4. No matter what they must still. IF YOU ACTUALLY STOLE THEY SHOULD DEAL WITH YOUI LIKE A SMALL GIRL!!! CRIMINAL!.. FOOOOLS OF THE NATION!..

  5. Fellow Nigetians, I don’t understand how this criminal proceeding will play out. This woman stole Nigerians money, she committed that crime in Nigeria. Don’t you think this felon must be extradited from UK to come and face the charges in Nigeria? Or is she indicted on different crime over there? or is she going to be extradited to come and face a separate charges at home? either way, the best option to punish this woman is to bring her back home to serve her punishment. Nevertheless, I’m glad with the way this case is progressing.

  6. This is good news,, jus what I have been waiting to hear.. She is a big disgrace to womanhood.. May God have mercy on her… But she must be jailed.. We don’t jus want peace, we want JUSTICE!!!!!

  8. George: So in the end, was it worth it? Jesus
    Christ. How irreparably changed my life has
    become. It’s always the last day of summer and
    I’ve been left out in the cold with no door to get
    back in. I’ll grant you I’ve had more than my share
    of poignant moments. Life passes most people by
    while they’re making grand plans for it.
    Throughout my lifetime, I’ve left pieces of my
    heart here and there. And now, there’s almost not
    enough to stay alive.

  9. All of them that helped run Nigeria down will face justice no matter who they are. There should be no sacred cows like in the day of Obasanjo.
