The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, says the former Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Alison-Madueke and her associate Kola Aluko, are all on the investigating radar of the commission.

Magu said this while appearing before the House of Representatives Committee on Financial Crimes to defend the agency’s 2016 budget. He told the committee that the agency will soon move into the petroleum sector.

A member of the committee, Rasaq Atunwa, while speaking to newsmen after Magu’s presentation, said

“I said the EFCC has recovered a lot of money for Nigeria and he (Magu) mentioned that in that regard, more sectors of the economy are likely to come under investigative activities. I said ‘will it include the petroleum sector’? He said, ‘yes’. And I said ‘would it include investigating the following people – Diezani Alison-Madueke, Okonjo-Iweala and a particular oil magnate’, and he said ‘yes’; those people are already under their investigative radar.”he said

Alison-Madueke, was last year arrested by the National Crime Agency in the UK over allegations of money laundering and fraud.
