Former Nigerian Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, Faces Bribery Charges in UK Court

October 2, 2023

Former Nigerian Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London today to respond to charges of bribery offences. This follows her August 22nd indictment by the United Kingdom (UK) government over an alleged £100,000 bribe.

The UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) has stated that they suspect Diezani Alison-Madueke of accepting bribes in exchange for awarding multi-million-pound oil and gas contracts. NCA officials have alleged that she may have abused her power during her tenure in Nigeria to secure these financial rewards.

The case has attracted international attention and could have significant implications for the ongoing efforts to combat corruption within the global oil and gas industry. Diezani Alison-Madueke’s appearance in court marks a pivotal moment in this high-profile legal battle, as both Nigerian and UK authorities seek to address allegations of corruption that span international borders.
