The travails of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke has extended to her family as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has launched a manhunt for her son, Ugonna.
The anti-graft agency posit that Ugonna played an integral role in the alleged 2015 presidential election slush fund and also served as a middleman between the ex-minister and the now indicted MD of Fidelity bank, according to Sahara Reporters.
“We have launched a manhunt for Ugonna, who the suspects said was the one who drew up a list of individuals, who should be given the N23bn ($115m),” a top EFCC official disclosed.
“We don’t know exactly where he is but we will get him. He needs to explain his role in the sharing of the money because the bank officials have been mentioning his name since they were brought in.”
Ugonna, an engineering graduate of Maryland College Park, is the Head of Business Development and Commercial Marketing at Radam Maritime Services Limited, a firm, which is headed by his father, Alison Madueke, a former Chief of naval Staff who has also been grilled by the EFCC on money laundering allegations.
He is known to lead an ostentatious lifestyle, after photos emerged in 2012 showing him drinking champagne in private jets and displaying loads of dollar bills.
