Former Nigerian Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke today in London appeared in court with her mother, Beatrice Agama, and one Melanie Spencer.
Mrs. Alison-Madueke was arrested last week by the UK National Crime Agency over allegations that she engaged in bribery and money laundering. Earlier today, SaharaReporters published a detailed report about how the former minister looted and laundered funds in the United Kingdom using a network of relatives, co-workers and shady businessmen. Mrs. Madueke’s case came to the attention of law enforcement agents in the UK when she used her mother to purchase a posh apartment in Westminster.
Although it is confirmed that Mrs. Alison-Madueke will be charged alongside her mother and possibly an aide, SaharaReporters has been unable to confirm the identity of the other two persons who were arrested with the former minister.
