Diezani Allison-Madueke, the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, is facing serious allegations of bribery and corruption. She has reached out to Nigerians, asking for their prayers and support during this difficult time.
During a hearing on the fifth-floor courtroom in the United Kingdom, Diezani Allison-Madueke expressed her need for prayers. She specifically asked the Nigerian community in the UK to pray for her.
Benedict Peters’ defense lawyer, who traveled all the way from Nigeria to represent his client, believes that the case against Diezani Allison-Madueke is weak and won’t hold up in court. Emeka Ozoani (SAN), the lawyer, argued that the UK National Crime Agency (NCA) has spent a significant amount of time and taxpayers’ money investigating the case, but their evidence is not strong enough.
When asked if he flew from Nigeria just for the hearing, Emeka Ozoani (SAN) confirmed that he did. He came to the UK solely to represent his client and fight for justice.
