‘It’s Diezani’ — Bawa Clarifies Comment On Minister Who ‘Laundered $37m’

Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, has expressed that the minister who he had earlier said bought $37.5 million property from a bank and deposited $20 million cash is not a serving minister.

He stated that he was referring to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is currently at large.

Recall that on Tuesday during an interview, Bawa had narrated how the commission investigated a female minister, who he said, connived with the managing director of a bank to purchase a property worth $37 million.

Speaking on Thursday, Bawa stated that the former minister would still be prosecuted once she returns to Nigeria.

He spoke at a press briefing at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday.
