Federal High Court in Lagos dismissed an application by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, M
rs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, seeking to be joined as a defendant in an alleged N450m fraud case in Nigeria.

On Wednesday Oct 31st, Justice Rilwan Aikawa rejected the application, described it as bizarre and a misuse of court processes. Stressing that he would not allow himself to be used to frustrate Diezani’s imminent trial in the UK where she is currently under investigation and on bail.

The judge declined all of ‘Mrs Diezani’s demands’, including an order mandating the Attorney General of the Federation to facilitate her return from England, where she is currently being investigated for alleged fraud by the British Metropolitan Police.
