Former petroleum minister Diezani Allison-Madueke, according to The SUN news online, has been buzzing the lines of EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, apparently in a search for reprieve.
Reports have it that the embattled ex-minister has been running from post to post and her numerous calls to the veteran prosecutor have neither been taken nor acknowledged.
Exasperated, she allegedly reported Lamorde to the former National Security Adviser (NSA), General Aliyu Gusau (retd), complaining that the EFCC helmsman had been ignoring her calls.
It was further gathered that Gusau’s intervention earned little relief for her as Lamorde explained to the ex-NSA that Diezani had for over two and half years snubbed him.
The anti-corruption czar reportedly told the General he would not understand her spirited efforts to reach out to him now that she was no longer in power, adding for good effect that she poured more cold water on him with a usual shrill banter. “my brother, my brother” anytime they meet at public events.
It was further learnt that the embattled lady is not giving up without a good fight as she is said be prevailing on Gusau to convene a meeting between the two of them for fence mending.
It is not yet clear whether the General has obliged her request.
