We Have No Plans To Charge Diezani Alison-Madueke – UK Crime Agency

06 October 2015

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has no plan to charge
former Petroleum Minsiter, Mrs Deziani Alison- Madueke, a
spokesman for the Agency told the Guardian on Monday,
October 5, 2015 after the NCA had got a court order to keep
the £27,000 found on her till next April.

The Nigerian Presidency said in a statement on Sunday, that
it was “actively collaborating” with the UK authorities on
money laundering, bribery, and fraud investigation on Alison-
Madueke who was former petroleum minister under
President Goodluck Jonathan from April 2010 till May 2015.

Premium Times reported Friday that Alison-Madueke was
arrested by the NCA in the UK over investigation into
corruption and money laundering.

TVC News, reported the same Friday, that she had been
granted bail and was expected to appear in a London police
station on Monday, October 5, 2015.

The UK authorities, especially the National Crime Agency
never mentioned Alison-Madueke’s name in any of their
communication on this matter.

Reuters reported that the first ever female OPEC chairman
was arrested and said that a source in the Nigerian
Presidency confirmed it to news platform.

This story is unravelling quickly and beginning to look like a
media lynching of Alison-Madueke ignited by media
associated with the All Progressive Congress (APC).

We will keep you updated as more details continue to come
in on this story. Calls to Alison-Madueke and her family
members by The Trent, have gone unanswered.
