Nigeria Minister of Petroleum Resources under the government of President Goodluck Jonathan, Diezani Alison-Madueke, today appeared at a UK court with her mother, Beatrice Agama.

Alison-Madueke, who was arrested on Friday the 2nd of October, is being investigated by the UK National crime Agency by the UK National Crime Agency on allegations of bribery and money laundering.


According to a Sahara Reporters report, the former Minister is believed to have laundered funds in the United Kingdom using her co-workers, businessmen and relatives, including Agama who allegedly fronted for her to purchase an apartment in Westminster, central London.
