AT A GLANCE: Breakdown of all the cash, properties EFCC traced to Diezani

Diezani Allison-Madueke and her loot

A rare opinion by two staff of the public affairs directorate of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday revealed that the commission traced a total of N47.2bn and $487.5m in cash and properties to Diezani Allison-Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum Resources.

The above does not include “boxes of gold, silver and diamond jewellery, worth several million pounds”, which the EFCC said it found in one of Allison-Madueke’s palatial residences in Abuja.

This is by far the largest amount ever recovered from a single individual in the country’s history.
