Her statement didn’t go down well with Nigerians on social media (Twitter) following the massive corruption allegations that had being levied against the former minister.


Herald Nigeria had earlier reported Diezani’s probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over money laundering charges.

The ex-minister according to the EFCC fled the country immediately she exited office and her stay abroad has made it difficult to get her back to respond to different criminal allegations against her.

The suspended EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu had also insisted Mrs Diezani K. Alison-Madueke must be extradited, noting that she allegedly stole a whopping sum of $2.5 billion.


One of her forfeited properties was handed over by the EFCC to the Ministry of Health to be used as an isolation centre during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The property comprising six flats of threebedrooms and a boys’ quarter was forfeited by the former minister, following an order of a Federal High Court, Lagos in 2017.


The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court had in July summoned Diezani Alison-Madueke, to appear before it on October 28, to enter her plea to money laundering charge the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, preferred against her.

Here are some of the comments of concerned Nigerians on social media after the story was published:
