UPDATE: More Woes For Diezani As EFCC Sends More Proof To UK...

Two Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) detectives have been dispatched to the United Kingdom (UK) with more evidence in the investigation of former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke, The Nation reports.

Mrs. Alison-Madueke’s latest trouble borders on the uncovering of $1.7billion contracts involving her and two business associates.

Mrs Alison-Madueke, who has temporarily forfeited some assets, may lose five more. The assets are under verification.

The anti-graft agency is also investigating the ex-minister on the whereabouts of $15.8billion NLNG dividends.

She is being investigated alongside some former officials of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), which is the upstream arm of the NNPC in charge of oil exploration and production.

But the United States, the UK, the EFCC and other agencies in some jurisdictions may harmonise the investigations.
