The Managing Directors and Executive Directors of two leading banks in Nigeria are already in a panic mood as security agents try to unravel their involvement in the allegation of bribery, money laundering and corruption against a former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke, Freedom Online is reporting.
Alison-Madueke was arrested and arraigned before a Magistrate Court in London on Friday by the United Kingdom National Crime Agency.
She served in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Freedom Online said it learnt the bank officials “are already pressing buttons to ensure that they are given a soft landing but they were told that if they cooperate with the prosecution, their request will be granted”.
They are also pleading for names of their banks “to be protected during the arraignment of the former minister in London, a request which may be difficult to grant”.
