Diezani Alison-Madueke to stand trial in the UK – June 2017


The trial against Diezani Alison-Madueke for alleged corrupt practices, is set to begin in the UK in June 2017.

The UK NCA (National Crime Agency) arrested Diezani and 4 accomplices in 2016. The EFCC are working with the NCA to produce evidence in building the case against Diezani.

Diezani’s siblings, Abiye Agama and Somye Agama, were arrested with her, and are to be charged alongside her.

According to EFCC records, some of the looted assets linked with Mrs. Alison-Madueke are:

1) A block of six units service apartments on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi.
2) Six units terrace flats in Yaba, Lagos Mainland.
4) Twin four-bedroom duplexes in Lekki Phase I.
5) Two duplexes on Banana Island.
6) A duplex in Asokoro District, Abuja.
7) A mini-estate in Mabushi, Abuja.
8) A set of 12 terrace duplexes at Omaremi Street in Port Harcourt
9) Large expanse of land at Oniru, Victoria Island in Lagos.
10) A multi-billion Naira estate in Yenagoa.
11) Two apartments in Dubai marked as J5 Emirates Hills (30million Dirham) and E146 Emirates Hills valued at 44million Dirham.
12) A hotel in Port Harcourt under investigation.
13) $37.5m mansion on Banana Island in Lagos.
14) $153 Million (permanently forfeited).

Diezani vigorously denies ownership of the $153 Million forfeited and claims the EFCC never formally charged her with ownership of the money.

The EFCC state they are looking forward to the case going ahead in the UK and deny being involved in any negotiations with Diezani to drop the case.

Ehen, roll on June 2017! Let UK courts show Naija courts how not to drag out cases! :
