Embattled Ex-Minister To Forfeit £28 Million Jewellery To FG



Former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke may forfeit her highly–priced jewellery valued at £28 Million to the Federal Government of Nigeria. This was disclosed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC.

The jewellery were impounded from the home of the former minister when operatives of the EFCC raided her house in Abuja shortly after she lost her position.


A top official of the EFCC confirmed to newsmen in Abuja that the boxes containing the items were stored in a safe custody with some of the items still bearing their expensive price tags.


“Maybe we will soon invite Nigerians to come and see what one person acquired or collected as gifts while serving as minister,” the EFCC official said in Abuja.


“We have even brought in dealers and experts from the United Kingdom who have assessed the value of the gold and silver in the boxes we seized from the woman’s homes and they have ascertained that the value is not below £28 million,” the top official said.
