Nigeria discovers two more properties in investigation into ex-minister

Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has discovered two more properties allegedly belonging to former Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Alison-Madueke, in its ongoing investigation into her conduct during her time in office (see previous blog). The EFCC is reportedly in the process of applying for the properties, located in Dubai and estimated to be worth around £7.1bn, to be forfeited and is said to be using the recently signed Nigeria-UAE MLA treaty to expedite the process.
