How Diezani bought $56m Jet


Former Petroleum Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke has been said bought $56million jet from the slush $1.09billion Malabu Oil Block cash.

The revelation was alleged by four anti-corruption organisations in a petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in which the groups demanded the seizure of the said jet.

The petition read in part: “The aircraft’s most recent flight, according to public aircraft tracking websites, was from Paris to Dubai airport on the 7th June 2017. The aircraft appears to have remained in Dubai since.

“There is, therefore, reason to believe that the jet is still in Dubai airport and could be frozen by competent authorities as possible proceeds of crime.

“We kindly urge you to verify this information and take appropriate steps, including asset freezing and forfeiture, where possible, under the 2018 Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters between Nigeria and United Arab Emirates.”
