US Seeks Forfeiture Of $100m lAllegedly Laundered For Diezani

The US Department of Justice has gone to court seeking the forfeiture and recovery of approximately $144 million of Nigerian assets allegedly laundered in and through the United States.



The department filed a complaint alleging that Nigerian businessmen, Kolawole Akanni Aluko and Olajide Omokore, conspired with others to pay bribes to former Minister for Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

In return for these improper benefits, Alison-Madueke allegedly used her influence to steer lucrative oil contracts to companies owned by Aluko and Omokore.

The complainants alleged that the proceeds of the illicitly awarded contracts were subsequently laundered in and through the US. and used to purchase various assets subject to seizure and forfeiture, including a $50 million condominium located in one of Manhattan’s most expensive buildings – 157 W. 57th Street – and the Galactica Star, an $80 million yacht.“The United States is not a safe haven for the proceeds of corruption,” Acting Assistant Attorney General Blanco said.

According to the U.S. government, Aluko, Omokore purchased millions of dollars in real estate in and around London for Alison-Madueke and her family members, then renovated and furnished these homes with millions of dollars in furniture, artwork and other luxury items purchased at two Houston-area furniture stores at Alison-Madueke’s directive.

In return, Alison-Madueke allegedly used her influence to direct a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to award Strategic Alliance Agreements (SAAs) to two shell companies created by Aluko and Omokore: Atlantic Energy Drilling Concepts Nigeria Ltd. and Atlantic Energy Brass Development Ltd. (the Atlantic Companies).

    2. And same you guys will keep abusing this same government that is helping to recover looted Jonathan and co funds. Useless citizens. Where you guys should channel our energy you won't. Even if this present government is not working as they promised, I am happy Jonathan was voted out, without it,we won't find such loots stashed by same people we call "Hero's". America Government should just return our money.

    3. There is something you people don't know. What she did has been done by all before her but her own case is making headlines because she is not from the north. Can any of you prove that her predecessor didn't loot? He probably did worse 😕

  8. @ Weed Chic, because she is not from the north now, we should let it slide. North, South or west anyone caught with loots should be exposed and punished.
