Palpable fear and tension gripped Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s ministers and allies as former Petroleum minister, Dieziani Allison-Madueke headed to a UK court to face corruption trials on Monday as the first female OPEC President was said to have cut off every link with her Nigerian contacts her arrest and bail in London
The source said “Those in Jonathan’s camp were shocked by Diezani’s arrest. They have been desperately trying to get in touch with the ex-Minister since then without success.
“They were worried that Diezani has cut off contact with everyone, creating fears that she might spill the beans.
“The fear in Jonathan’s camp is that Diezani might be given the James Ibori treatment. They are suspecting that she might be tried and convicted in the UK.”
“None of us has been able to reach out to Diezani because all her lines are off. She has also not called to share her travails with anybody.”
It is the tradition of foreign courts to lighten the sentences of suspects if they cooperate with investigations and it seems like Mrs Allison-Madueke is looking to cut such a deal with the authorities
