The former nister who is on a “conditional police bail” pending further investigation to be conducted in the UK and overseas.by the National Crime Agency, looks like she might be appearing in court as soon as this week.
According to the Sunday Vanguard besides the four other persons arrested with the former minister, more suspects may also be arraigned.
It would be recalled that a large haul of cash was found at the former minister’s home. Security agents responding to an allegation of theft committed by one of Diezani’s aides, uncovered a stash of N700million in cash
In recent time, Diezani Alison Madueke has been trailed by allegations of corruption, fraud, cronyism, abuse of office, and lately high-level promiscuity but no one had been able to call her to order, not even the former President Jonathan but it now seems like judgement and the law is finally catching up with her even if in a foreign land – the same land she escaped to, to avoid prosecution back home.
Meanwhile, the OPEC of which Diezani was also appointed President, has had her pictures removed from their office walls in Geneva.
