FG lists Diezani’s bras, jewellery worth billions for sale

The Federal Government has commenced the process for the valuation of property belonging to embattled former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

As part of the list of assets forfeited by the former minister, personal effects like bras and waist trainers are not left out.

Diezani had fled the county shortly before former President Goodluck Jonathan handed over to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

She is alleged to have stolen $2.5 billion from the Nigerian government while she was minister — an allegation she has denied.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has since commenced a process to extradite her.

The federal government has gained forfeiture of Diezani’s properties located in Banana Island Foreshore Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos, including 18 flats and six penthouses.

Other properties listed include 125 wedding gowns, 13 small gowns, 41 waist trainers, 73 hard flowers, 11 suits, 11 invisible bras, 73 veils, 30 braziers, two standing fans, 17 magic skirts, six blankets, one table blanket and 64 pairs of shoes.

The federal government has begun the process of screening 613 independent valuers expected to manage the sale of the assets permanently forfeited.

Diezani, who was minister under former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been in the United Kingdom since 2015 and has refused to return to Nigeria ever since.

The Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa,stated before the House of Representatives in May that jewellery worth N14billion were seized from Diezani.
