The Court of Appeal has dismissed an application by former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to overturn the forfeiture of her $40 million worth of jewellery seized by the Nigerian government
The Lagos Division of the appellate court on Friday ruled that the suit by Diezani, against the July 19, 2019 judgment of the Federal High Court, lacks substance.
Justice Nicholas Oweibo then ordered the seizure following an application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Diezani’s appeal is marked CA/L/1263/19. The schedule attached to the application listed jewellery categorised into 33 sets.
