Former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke has demanded the sum of N100 billion in damages against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Attorney General of the Federation.
In the suit filed by his counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Diezani also wants the court to compel the EFCC to publish an unreserved apology in at least three national newspapers including THISDAY, The Punch and The Sun newspapers within seven days from the date of judgment.
She said the EFCC publications against her were made to denigrate, disgrace, embarrass, humiliate and subject her to public ridicule, odium, opprobrium and derision in the eyes of right-thinking members of the public and the society at large.
She noted the suit challenging the EFCC over the link that she was the owner of the jewelries worth $40 million as no evidence was provided to her before the order of forfeiture was obtained.

EFCC traces N47.2 Billion, $ 487.5 Million to ex-Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke” were maliciously wrote, authored and/or caused to be written, authored, or published to the whole world at large.
