The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), yesterday, invited Alison Amaechina Madueke, husband of embattled former Petroleum Minister, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Madueke, a retired Admiral of the Nigerian Navy and former Chief of Naval Staff, was picked up in Abuja yesterday morning by EFCC operatives over alleged money laundering to the tune of $600,000 through his personal accounts.
Madueke was summoned in connection with some funds, which were traced from some suspicious transactions into his account, reports Vanguard, citing a top EFCC source.
“They think he has some clarifications to do. The invitation by the EFCC certainly had nothing to do with the wife. He reported there, cleared the air and he was asked to go back home,” another source, a legal practitioner told Vanguard.
Madueke had since been released on administrative bail, but a Vanguard source said he might be asked to report back on a future date.
