New Update: Diezani Alison-Madueke Released On Bail


Former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, was arrested by the UK National Crime Agency, today, October 2 and was later that day released on bail (TVC News update).

Initial reports:

According to Premium Times, Diezani was arrested for bribery and corruption related offences which are currently being investigated by the UK National Crime Agency.

Four other Nigerians were also arrested alongside Diezani by the British law enforcement agency.

The report said the British High Commission in Nigeria through its press and public affairs officer, Joseph Abuku, confirmed the arrest of some Nigerians by the UK agency.

“This morning, five people between the ages of 21 and 60 were arrested on suspicion of bribery and corruption offences. The crimes are being investigated by the National Crime Agency.

“The National Crime Agency does not confirm identity at arrest nor provide information that could be used to corroborate the identity of an arrested individual,” he said.

The former minister recently discharged accusations made by Ajjampur R. Ghanashyam, the Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, to the result that, as minister, she “sat” on a $15 billion oil deal, defining it as false, groundless and libelous.

Meanwhile, in a statement released on its website, the agency confirmed the arrest of the former minister through its website.

The statement issued to confirm the arrest read: “The National Crime Agency’s recently formed International Corruption Unit has arrested five people across London as part of an investigation into suspected bribery and money laundering offences.”

Nigerians have also expressed their excitement over the arrest of the embattled former petroleum minister, stating that it has been long overdue.
