The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has reportedly gone after some executives of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation who worked under ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Anti-graft investigators with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission are currently interrogating a former managing director of one of the subsidiaries of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and three former executive directors of the oil corporation under ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.
The four are said to be under investigation by officials of the Subsidy Unit of the EFCC and their counterparts from the National Crime Agency of the United Kingdom in relation to the former minister’s case.
The PUNCH learnt on Sunday that the ex-NNPC MD and the three former EDs had already been directed to be reporting to investigators. The four were said to be “very close” to Alison-Madueke while in office.
An EFCC source said the ex-minister might appear in court on Monday (today).
“The man has been sacked now. He has been reporting to the EFCC since. Even three former executive directors are also reporting to the EFCC to tell the agency what they know about the NNPC funds,” a top official of the anti-graft agency said.
