EFCC Traces Huge Amount Of Cash And Properties Linked To Diezani

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has said it had so far traced N47.2bn and $487.5m in cash and properties to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.

According to the anti-graft agency, these were apart from “boxes of gold, silver and diamond jewellery, worth several million British pounds sterling,” discovered during a search of Diezani’s palatial residences in Abuja.

The EFCC said it discovered several of Diezani’s landed properties scattered all over Lagos and other parts of the country in the course of its investigations.

This was contained in an statement entitled, “Diezani Alison-Madueke: What an appetite,” jointly authored by two officers in the EFCC’s Public Affairs Directorate, Tony Orilade and Aishah Gambari.

The financial crimes watchdog recalled that just on Monday Diezani’s $37.5m mansion on Banana Island, Lagos, was forfeited to the Federal Government.

It said Diezani displayed uncommon temerity in illegal acquisition, when she bought a block of six units serviced apartments at Number 135 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, “just a few hundred metres away from the EFCC zonal operations hub. The apartment has a standby power generating set, sporting facilities, play ground and a water treatment plant. The property was bought at the rate of N800m on January 6, 2012.”

The anti-graft agency stated that it discovered other Diezani’s properties such as a 21-mixed housing units of eight four-bedroomed apartments, two penthouse apartments of three bedrooms at No. 7, Thurnburn Street and 5, Raymond Street, Yaba, Lagos.

It said, “The Raymond Street property is made up of two en-suite two-bedroomed apartments and one four-bedroomed apartment.

“The Yaba, Lagos properties, which dug a deep hole of an eye-popping N1bn were paid for on May 30, 2012. The same day Alison-Madueke splashed N900m on a Port Harcourt estate.

“In Lekki Phase One, an upscale neighbourhood of Lagos, operatives found a twin four-bedroomed duplex. The duplex is located on Plot 33, Block 112, Lekki Peninsula Residential Scheme Phase 1, Lekki, Lagos, with an estimated value of over N200m.

“Also in Lagos, a large expanse of land at Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos has also been traced to the former Petroleum Resources Minister. The land, which is located in Oniru Chieftaincy Family Private Estate, Lekki peninsular, Lagos and currently being utilised as a dumping site, was bought on February 16, 2012, for N135m.

“Plot 8, Gerard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, another property traced to Alison-Madueke, is a penthouse on the 11th Floor in the Block B Wing of the building. It was bought for N12m on December 20, 2011.

“On Plot 10, Frederick Chiluba Close, in the serene, upscale Asokoro district of Abuja, lies a tastefully-built and finished duplex. In the compound, there are also a Guest Chalet, Boys’ Quarters, an elegant swimming pool, fully-equipped sports gym and a host of other amenities. Investigators have discovered that the property was acquired by the ex-minister in December, 2009, at the cost of N400m but it was never declared in any of the asset declaration forms filed by Alison-Madueke.

“Also linked to the former Minister in Abuja is a mini estate at Mabushi, Abuja. The estate located on Plot 1205, Cadastral Zone B06, Mabushi Gardens Estate, houses 13 three-bedroomed terrace houses, each with one bedroom en-suite maid’s quarters. It was purchased on April 2, 2012 at the princely sum of N650m.

“In Aso Drive, Maitama, Abuja, Alison-Madueke reportedly acquired a six-bedroomed en-suite apartment made up of three large living rooms, two-bedroomed guest chalets, two-bedroomed Boys Quarters, two lock-up garages and a car park. It was bought on July 20, 2011 for N80m.”

*Haba this is too much for one person....I dont know whether to be upset or laugh.


  1. Are they still on this matter?πŸ™„πŸ™„
    How about telling us what they've done with the discovered loot. Make we hear word Jare!

    1. Go and learn how this system works so you don't come out uneducated with your comment.

    2. Federal government can't spend the money until the alleged criminal is proven guilty by the court of law.

    3. Thanks for the 'education' sir!

  2. This woman is evil, she's a devil messenger!
    How did she managed to embezzled that much money that could have saved the lives of many Nigerians from abject poverty.

    Wickedness of the highest order.
    I hope she rot in jail.

    1. She will rot in jail and then burn in hell after.
      A very wicked woman who has brought many curses on herself and her generations.

    2. Rotting is an understatement!

      This woman was on a Roll!😳

    3. She's not a thief but a silent , international, and mean robber. She has no pity for Nigeria. All that mattes to her is her wicked slefish interest. I won't curse her. She is already receiving her punishment or what can be more painful as having the whole world without a sound health? That's her punishment. Her reward is in hell fire.

  3. EFCC and media trial. So so talk, throwing various numbers at us. Oya prosecute her and let us see

  4. Biko, how much money do we have in Nigeria? These lady then have all these cash., I still want her as my sugar mummy joooor

  5. They should bring her in for trail n.a., aahh!

  6. Stella efcc na thief ooh..I swear...when apc leaves we will also hear all the things apc members have stolen...

  7. I refuse to believe Diezani looted this much. It is just unbelievable, no human being is capable of such! Ah Kahn! EF FCC try again, let me go back to sleep and pretend I didn't read this.

  8. Wow, now I just admire her audacity. She was possessed not by a demon of greed, but by principalities and powers of greed. Her greed is insatiable = witchcraft! witchcraft!
    She felt so entitled. She was very comfortable spending the money. Her mind believes is belongs to her. She was & is a psychiatric nut case.

  9. Yet you guys cant prosecute her?

  10. Abegi. EFCC should stop throwing figures at us. APC should also come out to tell us how much Buhari's medical vacation is costing us.

  11. If you know her ministry and know the worth of crude oil and how much was 'unremitted' to the federal account,you will understand that all these properties listed,is a walk in the park.

  12. Aiye Dieziani O ni daa!! (In Aremu Afolayan's voice).

  13. First of all.. A STANDING OVATION for this Madam...The system will always find a way to reset and resuscitate itself and that's why people like her will take so much and fear for nothing given the kind of country we are..

    EFCC is still barking and yet to bite and that's why they are throwing the news in the media hoping it stare some agitations and provoke the average Nigerian to join the fight against corruption... But who is gonna fight for them when they themselves have skeletons in their cupboards ..


  14. This woman really hit😳only her on top this listed 😳😳

  15. Very unseemly press release from EFCC that is supposed to be a feared anti-corruption body. Instead of dragging Diezani to court if they can prove she stole, they are doing press release captioned "appetite". So typically mediocre of Buhari-Osinbajo presidency. Efcc should not even give excuse that they are cooperating with USA or UK when the truth is they dare not charge Diezani to any court, even in absentia. Efcc have turned to looting and non-looting disgracing agency, covetously listing properties but too cowardly to prosecute. Buhari's family are stealing more than Diezani could dream of misappropriating. Zoogeria.

  16. Vanity upon vanity, all is vanity. What shall we give in exchange for our soul. Hmmmn omase o. Seek yea first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, wealth with peace of mind shall be added unto us.

  17. Nice. Will the EFCC also go after the likes of Abdulsalami, IBB, OBJ, Alhaji Alhaji, Atiku, Danjuma, Gusau and many others who have amassed trillions in hard currency from our common patrimony? Otherwise, Diezani's case is partial and unjust. QED@atm
