Alison Madueke (EX pertroleum Minister's Husband) Arrested By The EFCC
The EFCC yesterday arrested Rear Admiral Alison Madueke (rtd), husband to former petroleum minister, Diezani, over alleged money laundering to the tune of $600, 000, official sources said.
An impeccable source at the EFCC who confirmed the development, but sought anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the matter, revealed that Madueke, a former chief of naval staff, was picked up yesterday morning in Abuja for alleged illegal routing of funds in excess of $600,000 through his personal account to some accounts abroad.
The husband of the embattled former minister was later granted an administrative bail on self-recognition, after a few hours of interrogation at the EFCC office. His international passport was however seized by the EFCC officials.
Though the details on what the laundered $600, 000 was meant for, investigation revealed that it may not be unconnected with the failing medical condition of the one-time most powerful minister under former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
