Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has launched a manhunt for Ugonna, son to the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Ugonna is wanted in connection with the alleged disbursement of money to officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and election monitors in the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.
Diezani’s son served as a middleman between the ex-minister and the Managing Director of Fidelity Bank, Nnamdi Okonkwo.

Okonkwo was arrested on Monday for handling $115m for Diezani in the build-up to the election.
Okonkwo was alleged to have helped in converting the money to N23bn which was then disbursed to INEC officials and election monitors under the instruction of Ugonna, for the electoral chiefs to manipulate the poll results.
Ugonna is the Head of Business Development and Commercial Marketing at Radam Maritime Services Limited, a firm, which is headed by his father, Alison Madueke, a former Chief of naval Staff, who is also under investigation by the EFCC for alleged money laundering.
