Former Minister of Petroleum Resources Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke will not be able to leave the United Kingdom (UK) until April, next year, The Nation learnt yesterday.
That is when the investigations into allegations against her are expected to have been concluded, Judiciary sources said.
Mrs Alison-Madueke was arrested last week along with four others by the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency (NCA).She was granted bail. Her international passport was, however, seized.
On Monday, the London Westminster Magistrate’s Court on Marylebone Road approved the holding of the £27,000 cash seized from her, following an application brought by the NCA under the Proceeds of Crime Act in the UK.
The court also ruled that the cash can be held for six months – till April, next year when she is expected to be arraigned after investigations.
It was learnt yesterday that the court also granted the order that she should remain in London while investigations last.
