“On Friday 2nd October, the National Crime Agency’s recently formed International Corruption Unit arrested five people across London as part of an investigation into suspected bribery and money laundering offences.
“All five people arrested were released on conditional police bail later that evening, pending further investigation both in the UK and overseas.
“The investigation commenced in 2013 under the Proceeds of Corruption Unit, and transferred to the NCA earlier this year.”
Premium Times has learnt that Diezani’s travelling documents, so as the ones of four other Nigerians arrested alongside, were seized.
It should be recalled that hours after the reported arrest the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission raided her Abuja house and sealed the property.
