DIEZANI-ALISON-MADUEKE1



The application by Diezani Alison-Madueke, Ex-Minister of Petroluem Resources, seeking to be joined as a defendant in an alleged N450m fraud case in Nigeria, has been rejected by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.

Justice Rilwan Aikawa described the Ex-Minister’s application as bizarre and a misuse of court processes.

The judge held that he would not allow himself to be used to frustrate Diezani’s imminent trial in the United Kingdom.

Aikawa rejected all Diezani’s prayers, including an order to compel the Attorney General of the Federation to repatriate her from the UK.
