The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has debunked rumors of a diamond bra being part of the seized properties of the former Nigeria Petroleum Minister, Alison Madueke. ayokinews.com reports
Recall that the Nigerian government had in October listed forfeited assets by Diezani, to include properties located in Banana Island Foreshore Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos state.
Other items listed by the Nigerian government includes 13 small gowns, 125 wedding gowns, 73 hard flowers, 11 suits, 11 invisible bras, 41 waist trainers, 17 magic skirts, six blankets, one table blanket, 73 veils, 30 braziers, two standing fans and 64 pairs of shoes.
However, as at the time of the listing, reports had circulated that a diamond bras were also part of the items forfeited by Diezani.
Speaking during a featured programme on TVC Your View, the EFCC Chairman stated that no diamond bra was recovered from Mrs. Diezani.
Speaking on the challenges affecting the anti-graft agency, Bawa, noted that the attitude of Nigerians to the activities of the commission poses a threat.
“You have accused us several times of media trial, but I think it’s good to be fair to everybody at all times. Justice is a two-way thing. There was nothing like diamond bra. It’s a creation of social media,” he said.
“I can tell you that for free because I am the lead investigator on that. I’m not aware of it. If there is something on that, I should know because I led the search and all of that.
“And that is one of the things that I mentioned to you that the biggest problem that we have is our attitude. We need to change for the better,” Bawa said.
