Nigeria: London Court Seizes £27,000 From Diezani Alison-Madueke

The United Kingdom's National Crime Agency secured the seizure of the sum of £5,000 and $2,000 from Mrs. Beatrice Agama, the mother of the former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke. The court also seized £10,000 from Melanie Spencer, one of the other persons arrested in the case.

United Kingdom's National Crime Agency secured the seizure of the sum of £27,000 (N8,155,164.37) in the case involving the former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke at the Westminster Magistrates Court, London.
As earlier reported, the former Minister was not in court but her mother, Beatrice Agama and one Melanie Spencer, were in court.
The IMMEDIATE past Petroleum Resources Minister, Mrs Alison-Madueke, was arrested on Friday with four other people by the International Corruption Unit (ICU) of the UK's National Crimes Agency. She was however granted bail after she had been detained for several hours. According to London Police she will be charged to court for money laundering.
The agency announced on its website on Friday that it had arrested five people "across London" as part of an investigation into suspected bribery and money laundering offences but stopped short of naming the suspects.
The Presidency on Sunday confirmed her arrest, saying it is working closely with British law enforcement over allegations of corruption and money laundering levelled against the former minister.
The Asokoro, Abuja residence of the immediate-past minister of Petroleum Resources was also stormed by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in what has been described as part of a multinational investigation of the former minister.
According to a security source, EFCC made "significant recovery" of documents at her Abuja residence.
