The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, says the anti-graft agency has so far recovered $153 million from a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Abdulrasheed Bawa added that 80 houses valued at $80 million were also recovered from the former minister.
In his words, “there are several cases surrounding Diezani’s case. I was part of that investigation, and we have done quite a lot.
In one of the cases, we recovered $153 million; we have secured the final forfeiture of over 80 properties in Nigeria valued at about $80 million. We have done quite a bit on that.”
He said other cases against her include a $115 million INEC bribery. He noted that the case has certainly not been abandoned and the commission is looking forward to having her in the country.
“We are looking forward to the time we will, maybe, have her in the country, and, of course, review things and see what will happen going forward. The case has certainly not been abandoned.”
