Court orders permanent forfeiture of N7.6 billion linked to Diezani Alison-Madueke

A Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Monday ordered the permanent forfeiture of N7.6 billion to the Nigerian government, money suspected to belong to former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

Justice Abdulaziz Anka gave the order sequel to an application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, seeking the final and permanent forfeiture of the funds to the federal government.

The anti-graft agency in its supporting affidavit stated that an investigation based on intelligence reports it received discovered that the N7.6 billion in the accounts of some banks were actually proceeds of unlawful activities held and laundered through Gbenga Komolafe, former Group Managing Director, Crude Oil Marketing Division of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation; Haruna Momoh, former Group Managing Director, Petroleum Products Management Company; Umar Farouk Ahmed, Group Managing Director of Nigerian Products Marketing Company (NPMC) on behalf of Mrs. Alison-Madueke.

The judge’s decision came days after he also ordered an interim forfeiture of 56 houses linked to the former minister valued at N3.3 billion.
