Diezani Alison-Madueke Appears Before UK Court 


The former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke who was arrested in the UK last friday for corruption and money laundering, appeared before a London Westminster Magistrate court earlier this morning.

Accompanying her was her mother, Beatrice Agame, but it’s not clear if she also faces the same charges.

According to reporter Sam Piranty of BBC, there was an application for detention of cash seized under the Proceeds Crime Act against Diezani by the National Crime Agency in Nigeria.

A total of 27,000 pounds was seized from Diezani Alison-Madueke until April, 2016.
It is not exactly clear if Alison-Madueke will face charges in Nigeria or not. She was released on bail on saturday morning.
