After what seems a long wait for many anxious Nigerians who want to satisfy their curiosity as regards missing funds in the petroleum sector, former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke is expected to be re-arraigned today at the Westminster Magistrate’s Court in London over charges bordering on money laundering and bribery allegations.

The former Minister was first arraigned in the court in October 2015 after she was arrested alongside four others by the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency, NCA.

She was, however, granted bail and ordered to appear before the court today to know her faith on the £27,000 seized cash and other charges leveled against her.

The court had ruled that the former Minister should remain in London while investigations last.
