Former Nigeria’s Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, is unrecognizable in a new set of pictures posted by renowned Nigerian journalist and Ovation publisher Dele Momodu, who said he visited her two weeks ago.
Mr. Momodu shared the pictures while introducing his newly launched magazine “TheBoss newspaper” Friday night.
Mrs. Alison-Madueke, accused of several corrupt dealings running into billions of dollars, is receiving treatment for cancer in the United Kingdom.
She was recently arrested by officials of the National Crime Agency, United Kingdom over suspected money laundering activities.
Alison-Madueke told Mr. Momodu that she did not steal Nigeria’s money.
Wow, she is almost unrecognisable. Although I’m not convinced that she didn’t steal from Nigeria, I certainly feel pity for her. I hope she gets well, and overcomes the cancer.
