Diezani in Fresh Trouble as Court Orders Her Arrest

Diezani Alison-Madueke, Ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources is in fresh trouble as the Federal High Court, FHC in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, on Monday, ordered for her rearrest due to some other pending corruption cases.

The charges were filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and their lawyer, Farouk Abdullah, verbally presented the case in line with the previously logged suit against the former Petroleum Minister.

The testimony from anti-corruption agency’s lawyer prompted the Presiding Judge, Justice Bolaji Olajuwon to give a warrant for Alison-Madueke’s detention.

Diezani’s Case

Recall that it was the second time a court in Abuja ordered the ex-minister’s arrest since she left office in 2015 and allegedly fled to the United Kingdom, UK to get away from all her financial scandals.

Also, after some of the earlier back and forth with the corruption charges, the case was later moved to the Abuja where the anti-graft agency filed a 13-count of money laundering against the former minister.
