The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, revealed that embattled ex Minister of Petroleum Resources Dazieani Alison Madueke, ex Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and Dezieani’s alleged partner Kola Aluko, are all currently being investigated by the commission.
Magu made this revelation during his appearance before the House of Representatives Committee on Financial Crimes to defend the agency’s 2016 budget. He told the committee that the agency will soon move into the petroleum sector.
According to a member of the committee, Rasaq Atunwa, while speaking to newsmen after Magu’s presentation, “I said the EFCC has recovered a lot of money for Nigeria and he (Magu) mentioned that in that regard, more sectors of the economy are likely to come under investigative activities. I said ‘will it include the petroleum sector’? He said, ‘yes’. And I said ‘would it include investigating the following people – Diezani Alison-Madueke, Okonjo-Iweala and a particular oil magnate’, and he said ‘yes’; those people are already under their investigative radar.”
