EFCC may send evidence against Diezani to UK agency

30 April 2016, 20:00

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may have concluded plans to send evidence linking former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to the $115million poll bribe to the National Crime Agency (NCA) in the UK.

An oil chief, Leno Olaitan Adesanya, was on Friday quizzed and detained in connection with the ongoing probe of the bribe given to some officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Adesanya allegedly contributed $1.85million to the bribe sum of $115million.

The commission has, however, watch-listed others at airports, seaports and border posts because they have not responded to the commission’s invitation.

The Managing Director of Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, and the bank’s Head of Operations, Martin Izuogbe are still in the custody of the agency in connection with the probe.
