Great Victory For APC!!! EFCC Traces Another Whopping N42.2 Billion And $487.5 Million Cash To Goodluck Jonathan’s Oil Goddess, Diezani
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has traced N47.2 billion, and $487.5 million in cash, and properties, to the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, according to an article written by officials of the anti-graft agency, that was made available to Post-Nigeria.
The article titled: ‘Diezani Alison-Madueke: What an Appetite!’ was jointly written by Tony Orilade, and Aishah Gambari, of the Public Affairs Directorate of the EFCC, on Monday night, detailing properties and money allegedly owned by the former Minister.
The revelation is coming a day after a Federal High Court in Lagos, had ordered the final forfeiture of a $37.5 million (N11.75billion) property on Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos State, allegedly owned by Diezani.
“A search of one of Alison-Madueke’s palatial residences in Abuja, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, turned up boxes of gold, silver, and diamond jewelry, worth several millions pounds sterling.
“Apart from the jewelry, the EFCC, Nigeria’s foremost anti-corruption agency, has traced N47.2 Billion and $487.5 Million in cash and properties to the former Minister of Petroleum Resources in ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
“The former Minister, who has been in London since the birth of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, has however, continued to deny any financial misdeed. She insists she is being severely maligned and persecuted by the EFCC”, the article reads in part.
The spokesman for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached for comments last night
