N23bn Diezani Bribe: EFCC Investigates Uduaghan, Others

Former Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has begun investigations into the roles of  the immediate past Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, in the $115m (N23bn) disbursed by a former
Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, during the build-up to the 2015 presidential election.

The EFCC also grilled a former Delta State Commissioner for Finance, Chief David Edevbie; and a former state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Chairman, Chief Edwin Uzor, for their alleged roles in the scam.

According to detectives in the anti-graft agency, the ‘Delta share’ of the money, which was N450m, was withdrawn from the Nnebisi branch of Fidelity Bank in Delta State and handed over to Uduaghan.

“During interrogation at the Port Harcourt office of the EFCC, we were told that the money was N450m and it was received through the Nnebisi branch of Fidelity Bank, Delta State, and handed over to Uduaghan for disbursement to the local governments during the 2015 general elections.

“They will be in court as soon as investigations are completed.”
