Dieziani Named In Us Bribery Scandal, $144 Million Assests In New York Seized



Nigeria’s former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Allison-Madueke, has been reportedly indicted for receiving a bribe, in order to award contracts worth $1.5 billion.

According to Financial Times, Dieziani’s assets, a 200-foot yacht and a Manhattan condominium worth $144 million, have been seized by US prosecutors.

The report claims that from 2011 to 2015, two Nigerians Kolawole Aluko and Olajide Omokore, allegedly conspired with others to bribe Diezani.

“The United States is not a safe haven for the proceeds of corruption.

“If illicit funds are within the reach of the United States, we will seek to forfeit them and to return them to the victims from whom they were stolen,” US assistant attorney-general, Kenneth Blanco, said.
