Report said Fidelity Bank also refunded N49 million, which is said to be the profit the bank made for helping Alison-Madueke to share the $115 million to designated people in the country.

This puts the aggregate of the recovered funds at N6.66 billion while N16.64billion is yet to be recovered.

The former minister gave the $115 million to Fidelity Bank for onward distribution to some officials of the Independent National Electoral commission (INEC) and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members across the country.

Alison-Madueke was reported to have sourced $88 million from some oil companies while she contributed N26 million.
