$20bn NNPC Fraud: EFCC Discovers Diezani's $37.5m Lagos Mansion.. by BeeBeeOoh(m): 4:57am On Feb 11, 2017
…recovers $9.3m from Ex-NNPC GMD

Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has discovered a $37.5m (N11.75bn) luxury high-rise building on Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos, allegedly belonging to the embattled former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

This is just as the EFCC revealed on Friday that it discovered $9.3m and £74,000 belonging to a former Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Andrew Yakubu. The money was allegedly kept in a bungalow situated in the slums of Kaduna.

The two discoveries were made as part of investigations into a string of fraudulent activities in the NNPC, which cost the nation over $20bn at a time the oil price stood at about $100 per barrel on the average

According to impeccable sources within the EFCC, the building allegedly belonging to Diezani was purchased between 2011 and 2012. It is situated in the same estate where Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, resides.

Saturday PUNCH learnt that the building comprises 18 flats and six penthouses.

Properties on Banana Island are believed to be among the most expensive in Africa with a plot of land selling between $4m (N1.25bn) and $6m (N1.8bn), according to Forbes Magazine.

A source at the EFCC said, “The aggressive drive by the EFCC to recover all hidden assets of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is under investigation for corruption and money laundering, produced another breakthrough this week with the discovery of a property acquired through shell companies by the former minister at upscale Banana Island in Lagos.

“The property is a 15-storey edifice comprising 18 flats and six penthouses.

“The property was acquired by the former minister between 2011 and 2012 at a total cost of $37.5m from the developers, YF Construction Development and Real Estate.

The property was allegedly acquired in the name of a shell company, Rusimpex Limited under the control of certain Mr. Afamefuna Nwokedi of Stillwaters law firm, in Lagos.”

Last year, the commission seized an $18m mansion in the Asokoro area of Abuja allegedly belonging to the ex-minister.

She has, however, denied all the allegations levelled against her.

Meanwhile, the commission has recovered $9.7m and £74,000 from a former GMD of the NNPC, Mr. Andrew Yakubu.

Ironically, Yakubu, who served as the head of the corporation between 2012 and 2014, is the key witness of the EFCC against the Chairman of Atlantic Energy Brass Development Limited and Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Limited, Jide Omokore, who is standing trial for an alleged $1.6bn fraud.

The EFCC said in a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, that the money was found in a safe hidden in a slum in Kaduna State.

The statement read in part, “A special operation conducted by operatives of the EFCC on February 3, 2017 on a building belonging to a former Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Dr. Andrew Yakubu, in Kaduna yielded the recovery of a staggering sum of $9,772,800.

APC should focus on taking the economy out of recession instead of wasting time on trying to taint the saintly image of the hero of modern day democracy and his then cabinet of competent technocrats.

They should also stop trying to distract Nigerians from focusing on their ailing president who has been away from office for one year now.

Useless propaganda with no pictures or video of the property. angry

I really get disappointed when I hear Nigerians heap all the blame of this current recession on the current govt., yes some of their policies might not have been right but the root cause cause if our problems is the MASSIVE CORRUPTION that has gone unchecked in past administrations.

Okay, I think you have enough evidence to prosecute Diezani. Let's do that fast so that all these millions in dollars can be put to good use.


These politicians aren't even smart, you steal huge money and you just let it lay around somewhere it can be easily found or traced. undecided angry

All these stories av been going on and on 4 almost 2years; yet no result, so single person been indicted. EFCC trying to distract Nigerians from the current hardship APC imposed on us and the where about of the dull president.

Nigerians open ur eyes; they r just distracting u. This news won't stop fuel from being 145, neither will it stop purewater from being 20naira very soon, or d increase in palmoil, garri and rice to reduce.

Incompetent people. Always dishing out fake news to divert attention. Not everybody believes ur propaganda again.

Give us good governance.
Good riddance.
