President Muhammadu Buhari has been told of former Minister of Petroleum Resources Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke’s arrest in Britain.
The Presidency also confirmed last night that the Department of State Service (DSS) was collaborating with the National Crime Agency (NCA) in Britain to get to the root of the bribery and money laundering allegations against the former Minister and four others, who are yet to be named.
The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, in an exclusive chat last night, said: “Nigeria is aware of the arrest of the ex- Minister; the government has been informed.
“The arms of government dealing with investigation, particularly the Department of State Service (DSS), are actively collaborating with the relevant agencies in the UK.”
Asked to expatiate on the matter, Shehu said: “Nobody wants to say anything as a Mark of respect for the agencies carrying out the investigation. We also want to show that we are serious about this anti-corruption war.”
