#SoundOff: Diezani In The News: All APC Media Hype About Nothing

Today at Westminster Magistrates Court London, an application for detention of cash seized under the proceeds of crime act was made against Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, former Petroleum Minister.

£27,000 (Twenty seven thousand pounds) was seized and the CASH detained until April 2016.

No further charges brought against her. She wasn’t even in court today. It was her mother, Mrs. Agama that was reportedly cited.

If it was a smoking gun as made out to be by APC, the British authorities would have put her in shackles and jail her.

So where is the £20 billion that has been floated by APC as recovered from her?

This is another news hype about corruption. Seems like much ado about nothing. Anyone’s cash could be seized by foreign authorities if it exceeds the normal limit allowed by law.

I was looking for a smoking gun of billions. How stupid could Nigerians be?
