The source said โ€œThose in Jonathanโ€™s camp were shocked by Diezaniโ€™s arrest. They have been desperately trying to get in touch with the ex-Minister since then without success.

โ€œThey were worried that Diezani has cut off contact with everyone, creating fears that she might spill the beans.

โ€œThe fear in Jonathanโ€™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.โ€

โ€œNone 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.โ€

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
