Nigeria issues arrest warrant for ex-oil minister Diezani Alison-Madueke

Alison Madueke

Nigeria’s main anti corruption body has issued an international arrest warrant for its former oil minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The authorities accuse her of misappropriating public funds worth several millions of US dollars.

Alison-Madueke, who’s a former Dominican diplomat,  is currently being investigated in the United Kingdom but Nigeria wants her to face trial in her country for an alleged act of illegal acceptance and giving gratifications.

      She will talk
      I can see that in her eyes .
      i sure she will disclose how much , to whom , why , she gave , when she realizes and accept she has been thrown under the bus.
      Of course she will write something from her prison cell (if found guilty )
      but as everything else there will be spin .

      Don’t be surprised if some of Skerrit’s sycophants and underlings run with that..
      Jail her,and when she sells out anyone,i hope this individual will be jailed in a darker cell.Corruption hurts, and and from 2004 Dominica has been an extremely corrupt country.

    Based on this updated news above we need to know ASAP what really has been the political relationship between this failed Leader Skerrit and this wanted lady from Nigeria. We want to know also where in their travels have they met? We need to know also, while at it, how much of our states poverty limited money that contributed to these meetings, if at all they took place and what was the agenda, issues, topic…and really was it in the interest of Domininca? If this is the case we need an updated open report and how has this relationship with this woman wanted for forgery, and in the company also of a questionable inept Prime Minister who knows nothing much of the decency of socio-economic development? Skerrit we want answers. Also, where is and what is the relationship now between Venezuela and Domininca? We need to know Skerrit. You have been hoping all over the world with our tax money and we see no change but the creation of poverty and Bobol in Dominica. Skerrit Must Go, you failed

    This lady illicitly siphoned millions of dollars from the Nigerian people to her personal bank accounts. This most corrupt individual was a diplomat of Dominica. Only Skerrit could have approved of this favorable gift to this charlatan. Birds of a feather flock together. The PM has tarnished the once pristine image of Dominica. A thorough forensic audit must be done on the ridiculously huge accumulation of assets and raw cash by the ‘supreme’ leader.

      unfortunately, Nigerian will not care to investigate her alleged crimes in Dominica
      our only hope is that she used illicit funds to purchase her passport

    That’s the kind of people Skerrit does do business with! To top it all he even sells them Dominican passports. And if that was not enough he even sells them diplomatic passports!! But you all still love your PM!!!

    Double (Dr) PhD please tell me did you receive any monies from the lady after giving her a Diplomatic and CC passport? and if you did are you going to send your three brilliant stogies Tony; Alick and Levi to provide legal assistance for her? after all it would be an opportunity to hold on to some of her $millions which you were desperately going after and the only reason you were attracted to her in the first place.
