Feb 18, 2016 – Diezani’s Husband, Rear Admiral Alison Madueke’s Passport Seized By The EFCC

The EFCC yesterday grilled Rear Admiral Amaechina Alison-Madueke, husband of the embattled former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The anti-graft agency seized his travel passport to restrict his movement to Nigeria, pending the conclusion of its investigation.

About two other ‘business associates’ of the ex-Minister were also said to be in EFCC’s custody’s last night.

The arrest was said to be in connection with the ongoing probe of the activities of the ex-minister.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) in the United Kingdom (UK) arrested and quizzed Mrs Alison-Madueke and four others on October 2, last year for alleged bribery and corruption and money laundering.

The EFCC has interrogated three to five more suspects since Mrs Alison-Madueke’s invitation by the NCA.

According to sources, the former Military Governor of Imo State was grilled in connection with alleged money laundering following the screening of his accounts.

There were conflicting reports on the amount in question last night.

A source in the commission said: “We have interrogated Rear Admiral Alison-Madueke as part of the ongoing probe of his wife, who is the immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources.

“After interacting with him, he was granted administrative bail. But all his travelling documents are with us. Therefore, his movement has been restricted to the country pending the conclusion of this investigation.

“Certainly, we will still have another round of interaction with Madueke any moment from now.”

Responding to a question, the source added: “The ongoing investigation of Diezani is extensive because of the sector she managed as a minister.”

Another source added: “Based on intelligence sharing with investigators in the UK, we interacted with Madueke and some business associates of the ex-Minister.

“We will release the details as may be necessary for public consumption because this investigation cuts across some countries.”

The National Crime Agency (NCA) had in October 2015 arrested Mrs Alison-Madueke and four others.

    There is no way this man can proof innocent of how his wife was diverting public funds into their private account. I don’t know the specific allegation that EFCC is bringing against him but all I know is that EFCC through its investigation might have had some evidences in connection with money laundering. As part of campaign to move this Country forward, I would like EFCC to act like FBI, CIA, so that they can be successful in prosecuting high profile cases like this. I would like to see all thieves in the government jittery whenever they hear about EFCC not by compromising and collecting bribe from them. If our EFCC officials can shun their bribe, these people will not be stealing our money for the fear of being prosecuted and then EFCC as a body will retain their dignity and respect.
