The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized a N3.58bn mansion in the Asokoro area of Abuja allegedly belonging to the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, said this during an interview with Al-Jazeera, a Qatar-based news network.

Magu said items in the house included jewellery, furniture, and a bulletproof gym worth about $2m.






     

     

    He stated that the house was part of the $10bn in cash and assets that had been seized by the federal government in the last one year.

    Magu said the agency had been able to take on a lot of big shots that were hitherto untouchable in the country, including top shots in the military and the political class, adding that a total of 164 convictions have been made in the last one year.

    He denied claims that the fight against corruption was politically-motivated.

    “No, not my EFCC; not the EFCC of today. We are not politicized. If there is an allegation against anybody, we will go after them,” he said.
