The anti-corrupption Czar who is the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has made a shocking statement about former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke
Bawa stated that the commission has so far recovered a total of $153 million and 80 houses valued at 80 million from the Ex-Minister.
“There are several cases surrounding Diezani’s case. I was part of that investigation, and we have done quite a lot, “ Bawa said in the April edition of the EFCC magazine, EFCC Alert.
“In one of the cases, we recovered $153 million; we have secured the final forfeiture of over 80 properties in Nigeria valued at about $80 million.”
Diezani is currently facing allegations of bribery and money laundering in London and Nigeria.
Although the long-running British probe into Diezani has yet to yield any charges, EFCC has pending corruption charges against her.
Former EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu in February 2020 said the former minister allegedly stole so much money that she needed to be extradited to the country to return them all.
