Former Petroleum Minister, Diezani, forfeits $153.3 million to Nigeria

Diezani-Allison-Madueke-talk

Former Nigerian oil minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, temporarily forfeited $153.3 million to the Nigerian government on Friday, the News Agency of Nigeria has reported.

This was sequel to an order by a Federal High Court in Lagos.

The seized money, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, was stolen from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and stashed in three banks in Nigeria, in US dollars and Naira.

Out of the loot, N23.4 billion was kept in Sterling Bank Plc. The sum of N9.08 billion was kept in First Bank Plc and $5m in Access Bank Plc.

Justice Muslim Hassan, who gave the order, gave Sterling Bank and any other interested party 14 days to appear before him to prove the legitimacy of the monies, failing which the funds would be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The judge made the order in favour of the EFCC which appeared before him Friday with an ex parte application seeking the temporary forfeiture of the funds.

In a nine-paragraph affidavit by by EFCC investigator, Moses Awolusi, and filed in support of the ex parte application, the anti-graft agency discovered how sometime in December 2014 the former minister invited a former Managing Director of Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, to her office. There they hatched the plan how $153,310,000 would be moved from NNPC to Mr. Okonkwo for Mrs. Alison-Madueke.

Mrs. Alison-Madueke, according to Mr. Awolusi, instructed Mr. Okonkwo to ensure that the money was “neither credited into any known account nor captured in any transaction platforms” of Fidelity Bank.

Mr. Okonkwo accepted and implemented the deal leading to the movement of $153,310,000 from NNPC to Fidelity Bank.

He said that two former Group Executive Directors of Finance and Account of NNPC, B.O.N. Otti and Stanley Lawson, helped Mrs. Alison-Madueke to move the cash from NNPC, Abuja, to the headquarters of Fidelity Bank in Lagos.

Mr. Awolusi said in a desperate bid to conceal the source of the money, Mr. Okonkwo, upon receiving it, instructed the Country Head of Fidelity Bank, Martin Izuogbe, to take $113,310,000 cash out of the money to the Executive Director, Commercial and Institutional Bank, Sterling Bank Plc, Lanre Adesanya, to keep.

He said the remaining $40 million was taken in cash to the Executive Director, Public Sector Accountant, First Bank, Dauda Lawal, to keep.

The investigator said out of the $113,310,000 handed over to Mr. Adesanya, $108,310,000 was invested in an off balance sheet investment using Sterling Asset Management Trustees Limited.

The money was was subsequently converted into N23.4 billion and saved in Sterling Bank.

Mr. Awolusi said the EFCC had recovered the N23.4 billion in draft and had registered it as an exhibit marked, EFCC 01.

The investigator said the EFCC had also recovered another $5 million out of the money kept with the Managing Director of Access Bank Plc, Herbert Wigwe.

He said the $5 million was recovered in draft and had been registered as an exhibit marked, EFCC 02.

According to him, First Bank’s Executive Director, Mr. Lawal had similarly converted the $40m kept with him to N9,080,000,000.

Mr. Awolusi, however, said the EFCC had recovered that also in draft and registered it as Exhibit EFCC 03.

Moving the ex parte application today, the EFCC lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo, urged Justice Hassan to order the temporary forfeiture of the funds to the Federal Government and to order Sterling Bank and Lawal, who were joined as defendants in the application, as well as any other interested parties, to appear in court within two weeks to show cause why the funds should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

Mr. Oyedepo, who said the application was brought pursuant to Section 17 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act No. 14, 2006 and Section 44(2)(‘) of the 1999 Constitution, said granting the application was in the best interest of justice.

Justice Hassan granted the order and adjourned till January 24, 2016 for the respondents to appear in court to show cause why the funds should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

    Interesting. I would like to see the conclusion of this case

    • Victoria

      Conclusion:my guy this Is Nigeria for you. The conclusion is already known. Madam madueke will give money to her representative and the money will be given to the same judge and the case will drag on and on and on until another government take over or the case will fade away. At the end of the show. Their will be no conviction and no one is going to jail and they will share the money. The grand plan is for the madam should just stay put in London.

  • sammyctu ode

    This is too obscene. Are we really humans in Nigeria? I don’t think so. It’s time for FG to start punishing and fine all these rouge banks that help people to steal and conceal money. Diezani instead of stealing this money for yourself why didn’t you spend it on the people of ND whom you leaders of that zone have turned to slaves! Shame Shame Shame on you diezani cos you are a deranged vulture. I know you don’t have any breast cancer you are just fooling people who are gullible. Since you have been in UK you must have been enjoying many rounds of sex with various men cos that’s the trait of the jaw women. They can never be satisfied with one man.

    Why EFCC must conduct midnight operation on Dizeani’s loot

    First thing first.
    The Managing Director of Sterling Bank, Mr. Yemi Adeola must be arrested
    before 12 midnight and locked up in prison for investigation and prosecution
    for moneylaundering because he acted as Chief Executive with likely intent to
    assist theft and provide cover for safekeeping of stolen funds. Ditto, Managing
    Director of Access Bank must be similarly arrested tonight and locked up in
    prison for the same unlawful conduct. Under no circumstances must the third
    criminal accomplice be let free. Accordingly the EFCC must conduct a midnight
    operation to arrest and lock up the Managing Director of First Bank. In law, any
    off-balance sheet account used for money-laundering is conclusively presumed to
    be within the knowledge of a bank’s Managing Director and the other Board members.

    • The Revolutionaries

      NIGERIANS MUST INSIST WITH FORCE that no treasury thief is left behind. All treasury thieves must be
      rounded up and brought to revolutionary justice on the streets and then laid to rest in perfect peace.
      Treasury thieves must never be allowed to live in peace or ever allowed to sleep well at any hour.
      Treasury thieves and their children must be treated as public enemies and chased with hatchets,
      machetes and daggers; and with all deadly weapons capable of causing sudden bloody death.

    Yawn….yawn…Is it not money from crude oil that is extracted from Diezani’s Niger Delta backyard? Or is it money from the sale of kolanut or kulikuli? Abeg, make I rest. Mugu (sorry, Magu) should also address the fraud allegations leveled against him. Yeye dey smell.

    • Pure Reasoning

      This is the problem with Nigeria why corruption will continue to hunt Nigeria and you are the embodiment of the problem for indicating that bcos she is from the Niger Delta or as you put it “Extracted from Diezani’s Niger Delta backyard”, therefore it is her right to steal as much as she want. With the exception of Diezani and perhaps her immediate family (given how cruel Nigerians are, I am sure her extended family will surely not get a lick of the money), how many people from Niger Delta that would benefit from the loot? I am from the Niger Delta. Definitely I know I will not.
      When people like you sing praises of criminals who are stealing from generation yet unborn in Nigeria says a lot why heavy looting will continue to sink the country. The amount money stolen could have save lives, build roads, and do so many things in the country and yet praise singer are here speaking nonsense.

    from their mouths to their anus – the smell of thieves! Nigeria’s banks are now fully run and damaged
    by criminal thieves who are wholly lacking in home training. After Sanusi Lamido Sanusi magicked off
    a whopping 1.2 trillion Naira from the Central Bank the usually naïve Naïve Nigerians thought they
    had seen the highest limit of theft in the banks, until Dizeani Allison-Madueke hired huge trailers
    to haul away a whopping 157 million dollars from the NNPC and hired three mentally wretched
    so-called Managing Directors of banks as boy-boy to off-load the bounty for secret banking.

          The BUHARI regime itself has no reputation
          for following up a corruption case to logical conclusion. In short the Buhari regime
          has no reputation for competence. It claims to investigate corruption, uncovers evidence,
          files charges but every often, withdraws the filed charges and sets the accused criminals free.

          Common sense should have dictated the arrest of the three Managing Directors of banks
          in Nigeria who were co-criminals with Dizeani Madueke on her 157 million dollars loot.
          But the Buhari government lacks the knowledge to think anything out properly.

          The impression is that President Buhari is under authority of shadowy evil men
          who remote-control him and tell him what to do. So long as that impression persists
          nobody out there will believe Buhari is fighting any corruption.

          Despite setting up a 7-member Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, nobody sees knowledge, wisdom or understanding in the way and manner the shambolic Buhari regime bungles and messes up all corruption cases so far uncovered with ignorance and with gross incompetence.

          • marc umeh

            I have said this time and time again. Buhari has damaged nigeria by his socalled war against corruption.
            Most nigerian had confidence in him when the “war” started. But now the entire world is shaking their collective head. What a major letdown.

            @marcumeh:disqus : This man called Professor Itse Sagay was the one arguing nonsense
            in full support of corruption few years ago, not so? What do you now expect from him?
            Does a leopard ever change its spot? Of course not!

            When Dipriye Alameighsia was arrested with millions of dollars in his suitcase in London,
            Professor Itse Sagay got ahead of himself and started talking nonsense in all newspapers
            that Britain must let Dipriye Alameighsia go free. As he said, Alameighsia had immunity
            as a sitting governor (to steal?)

            So, is that the kind of uninformed advice Buhari wants? Is that the kind of human being
            that should ever enter the presidential villa of a decent country as adviser on stealing?
            Let truth be told. Professor Itse Sagay is too mentally corrupt to be a presidential adviser
            on any matter – even including corrupt sex.

            It is only people who does not understand how society or organisation works that are surprised by the turn of events with Buhari. Buhari started his administration without articulating his plans and policies but believed that media propaganda and strongman mentality will endear him to people all the time.

            Please wait till 2019 draws nearer and you will see more of absurdity happening under this administration. Money moved from NNPC building as if NNPC building is now Nigerian security printing and minting company.

            Can EFCC tell us the NNPC account that was debited to withdraw the fund. What a pathetic country. The other day, Patience was accused of taking FG money money because money moved from Aso Rock. It is only in Nigeria building produce money without evidence of how the money gets into the building.

    What folks
    are saying here is the right thing. The EFCC Chairman Mr. Magu should show less
    crass ignorance or at least have less complex to simply ask those who know
    better. He spoilt the day by filing forfeiture petition without simultaneously
    arresting the criminal accomplices. That sort of poured rains on this EFCC
    parade because it shows ignorance rather than knowledge. It is by far worse
    that EFCC filed no charges against STERLING BANK, ACCESS BANK and FIRST BANK
    for criminal proceedings.

    In civilized countries these three (supposed) banks will be arraigned in court and
    convicted as nearly criminal organizations to pay thrice the amount laundered
    as fines. I had read clamours in Nigerian newspapers online asking President Buhari
    to dissolve his entire cabinet and reconstitute another with thinking people.
    There’s no better evidence of that pressing emergency than this mess
    which makes the Senate look convincing in refusing to approve Mr. Magu’s appointment
    as EFCC Chairman. Please notice I did not say anything about Itse
    Sagay’s 7-man presidential advisory committee. It is too crass for
    mention.

      Hey Smitho, let me chip in something about charges against BANKS or Financial Institutions….Hmmn!! trust me we need to be careful and get co-operations of BANKS, otherwise all the stolen funds recovery would be in jeopardy. I would think that its a kind of agreement or a solace for Financial institutions to co-operate in what ever form and they are guaranteed freedom once we/Nigeria can recover the stolen money. I think its ok for not prosecuting or put charges against the bank, we need their co-operations. God bless Nigeria.

        The way to wean her from theft, in the absence of home training counseling refrain, is to jail her.

    One thing the EFCC should tell Nigerians is were the funds moved from NNPC AC and logded in these banks in Madueke’s name or NNPC name or its subsidiary? If this fund were from NNPC and were meant to be stolen as we are being made to understand, in whose name are the fund lodged in the bank? We know our anti graft agencies enjoy sensationalism without giving details of certain transactions. If the funds were invested in the banks on behalf of NNPC or its subsidiary, it means the fund belongs to the govt, why then file for forfeiture to the govt when the fund belongs to the govt.

        Did you read and understand what he wrote? That is, his comment? I was almost livid with rage at Alison-Madueke and all those involved in this sad episode while reading the news item. But @Mosley has made some soul-stiring points and observations that can’t be dismissed with a wave of the hand. If you could match his depth of intellect you would see a shining light in him and appreciate his comment.

        This is because most Nigerians, especially those who come to this forum, have a great penchant for being too pedestrian, shallow-minded, gullible and quick to drawing conclusion without any basic analysis.

        • Broadway2

          No one is gullible except the gullibility is as defined from your own inability to look at the coin from the other side. The fight against CORRUPTION (Not individual) should be supported by all irrespective of the region or religion the suspected individuals hail from. His comment was defensive in favour of the former minister, and indirectly in favour of corruption. I have always said it on this forum and in other fora that even if my father is the one involved in corruption, I will never stand with him. I can’t stand people who “enjoys” at the detriment of others . The former minister was a staff of Shell, receiving salary like any other person in shell, then became a minister whose salary in four years is not upto #50m but here we are with nearly N30bn! This is the amount we know for now. Until we all stand against corruption TOGETHER in ONE VOICE, the future remains blink for Nigeria.

          • Reginald Dandeson

            Please, study and analyze what @Mosley said so that you can understand my post. You’re looking at the issue from an emotional perspective while am actually looking at it from both sides of the coin. I said I was almost livid with rage, meaning looking at the report from an emotional angle. But when I looked at the other side of the coin, from analysis of @Mosley’s comment, I was able to have a balanced view point devoid of emotions. You can do the same, if a state of balance means anything to you.

      Looks like you are daft or you are the type that is bent on antagonizing the effort of government no matter how it comes. Did you not read “The investigator said out of the $113,310,000 handed over to Mr.
      Adesanya, $108,310,000 was invested in an off balance sheet investment
      using Sterling Asset Management Trustees Limited.” from the article, what other senseless questions are you raising as to who or what the money was meant for. If you don’t understand what that line means, ask a banker for clarification.

    Why no bank managing director have been jailed for life so far beats me. If only we can send bankers and judges to jail this country would become a better place. Without these two groups, there is hardly any way the crooks will continue stealing as they are doing.

    This kind of money is available in Nigerian Banks and Country could not finance power supply and water supply/sewage projects to make light and water and waist disposal problems as history problems of the past. They could have giving the militants in River tributories where the River Niger and River Benue made it to the Atlantic sea areas. farm tractors, fishing boats in exchange for their automatic weapons of human destruction. Black people are cursed then to provide hardship for themselves.
