DIEZANI-ALISON-MADUEKE1



The Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday ordered the permanent forfeiture of the 2,149 pieces of jewellery and a customised gold iPhone, valued at $40m, recovered from the Abuja home of a Ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke.

Justice Nicholas Oweibo gave the ruling on Tuesday.

He held that Diezani, through her lawyer, Awa Kalu (SAN), failed to show cause why the items should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

Diezani is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), who insisted the items were proceeds of crime.
