UK police charge ex-Nigerian minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke with bribery

Former Nigerian Petroleum Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke has been charged with bribery by British police.

According to British authorities, Alison-Madueke is scheduled to appear in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on October 2.

“We suspect Diezani Alison-Madueke abused her power in Nigeria and accepted financial rewards for awarding multi-million-pound contracts,” Andy Kelly, Head of the National Crime Agency’s (NCA) International Corruption Unit, said.

“These charges are a milestone in what has been a thorough and complex international investigation.”
Alison-Madueke was a key figure in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The 63-year-old, who once acted as president of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), served as petroleum minister from 2010 to 2015.
