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.
Sam Piranty, a journalist with The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), who monitored the event through his twitter handle reported the following earlier today…
“Today at Westminster Magistrates Court an application for detention of cash seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act was made v Diezani”
“The application was made by the National Crime Agency #Nigeria”
“This means that she, contrary to emails from the court, may not have had to attend today”.
“Basically the NCA applied for an order that cash seized be detained #Nigeria”
“NCA have to apply on a cash seizure case within 48 hours so they must have found it recently #Nigeria”
“Or they found it earlier and this was a further application #Nigeria”
“£27,000 was seized in the case vs Alison-Madueke and CASH detained until April 2016 #Nigeria”
“Cash seized under Section 295 of proceeds of crime act until 5th April 2016 #Nigeria”
