Presidency Finally Responds To The Arrest Of Ex-petroleum Minister Allison-Madueke
The Presidency has finally responded to the arrest of former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, in London.
According to Premium Times, Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President, “The government is aware of the arrest and all the government investigative agencies are working very closely with the British law enforcement.
“Nigerian authorities are saying for the first time that matters are being handled with seriousness and deep commitment. Nobody wants to give the impression that this government is frivolous and unserious.
“For this reason, government is only confirming active collaboration. Beyond this, we are not saying more. In due course, Nigerians will be briefed on updates as appropriate.”
On the identities of the four other persons arrested alongside Alison-Madueke, Shehu said, “as I said no one is willing to provide further details at this point”.
