EFCC Intensifies Collaboration With UK NCA Over Diezani Alison-Madueke's Probe

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has intensified its collaboration with the National Crime Agency (NCA) in the United Kingdom with the ongoing probe of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke. 

According to an agent of the Anti-graft agency, who is actively involved in the ongoing investigation. “We have been collaborating with NCA on Diezani’s case which has reached an appreciable level. “We have the details of others arrested with Diezani but we will not disclose until the matter gets to a convenient bend. 

“So far, we have been comparing notes with NCA on a faster note in terms of tracking a few transactions and documents. There is no hiding place for the ex-Minister and her alleged accomplices. 

“By the time the trial begins, the NCA and EFCC would have established a solid case against the ex-Minister and other suspects,” the source said. It would be recalled, the International Corruption Unit (ICU) of the NCA had on October 2 arrested Diezani and four others. 

The identities of the remaining four suspects are yet to be unveiled. But all the suspects are being investigated for alleged bribery and money laundering.
