PHOTOS, VIDEO: EFCC seizes $18m house, $2m furnishings, jewelries from Diezani


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, says its fight against corruption has led to the recovery of a house allegedly owned by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The house is located in Asokoro area of the FCT, Abuja and is reported to be worth $18 million with furnishings worth $2million and a bulletproof gym.

The anti-graft agency showed the recovered house in a new interview with Al Jazeerah.

Also displayed in a video coverage were jewelries and monies reportedly recovered from corrupt government officials.

Speaking during the interview, the EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu said, “We have been able to take on a lot of big shots that were hitherto untouchable in the three arms of the military, political class. We have recorded 164 convictions in just one year.”

He, however, denied claims that the fight against corruption was politically motivated, saying, “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.
