Diezani Madueke ready to go to jail, promises to bring down others


Former Petroleum minister and former president OPEC Diezani Allison-Madueke, in the recorded conversation released by premium timed ,could be heard saying: “You and Jide
[i.e., OMOKORE] had some of the most
support that we could possibly give. At a
time when we’re not doing anything else,
we stuck our necks out regarding the
SAA and we supported it. [INAUDIBLE]

How the two of you have ruined it is
incredulous and incredible to all of us.
“I spoke to you several times about your
general behaviour, acquisition of assets,
etc., asking you to be a bit more careful
because [INAUDIBLE] will start
following you. I remember we had this
open discussion more than once. You
kept telling me that there was no issue
because you did it in a certain way, you
did it in a certain—and I kept telling you
that it doesn’t matter how you do it.

“Once you start acquiring, acquiring,
acquiring at a certain level, then you’ll
be—whether you like it or not, whether it
was done in the most transparent—you
understand?— manner or not, because
they will want to trace where it came
from. This is an age of terrorism,
“If you want to hire a yacht, you lease it
for two weeks or whatever. You don’t go
and sink funds into it at this time when
Nigerian oil and gas sector is under all
kinds of watch, as we have been for some
time, and where Atlantic [i.e., AEDC and/
or AEBD] itself has been the subject of all
kinds of speculation.”

In another conversation, Madueke,
while responding to speculations that
Aluko might want to blackmail her,
called Aluko's bluff and threatened to
spill the beans.

She said she was ready to reveal to
Nigerians all that happened and was
ready to follow Aluko and Omokore to

Madueke, during the conversation said:
"I said tell him (I.e. Aluko) to bring
everything out, and then you know what
will happen? No problem, I will be happy
to escort all of you to jail along with
myself. I said, in fact, you will be shocked
by what I'll do.

"Because when it comes to that, I will
come out and tell the Nigerian people
this is what happened oh. Oh, Yes, I will
blame myself, but it (INAUDIBLE)
and everything. Anything they want to
say, I am happy to go.

"But I will come out openly and say it so
that they can judge me openly, And then
all of us go and sit on the gate. Let us see
who survived (INAUDIBLE), me or you."

Details of the conversation has now
been filed as part of a civil complaint
by the US department of Justice seeking
the forfeiture of over $144 million slush

She also confessed the fact that both
Aluko and omokore were in the habit of
gifting her furniture but insisted that
the furniture were not more than $4
million dollars.

She said: "The furniture they gave me
didn't come to more than four million
dollars, altogether. It is true I was with"
Meanwhile, Kola Aluko, declared
wanted by the EFCC, has been identified
as the owner of Apartment 79, a
penthouse apartment in One57, one of
New York City’s most expensive
residential buildings.

However, the apartment would be sold
to the highest bidder by a Luxembourg
based Banque Havilland, in a
foreclosure auction in July, the New
York Post reported.

The penthouse sale is seen as the most
expensive foreclosure in New York City.
