Diezani Moved $115.01m,gave Belgore,Sulaiman 450m

An official of Fidelity Bank Plc, Mr Timothy Olaobaju, on Monday,
narrated how a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, stashed a sum of $115,010,000 in the bank with subsequent instruction to change it into naira and distribute it among individuals in the 36 states of the federation.
Among the beneficiaries, Olaobaju said, were a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr Dele Belgore; and a former Minister of National Planning, Prof. Abubakar Sulaiman, who both received N450m                    
Olaobaju said this on Monday when he appeared as a prosecution witness before Justice Rilwan Aikawa of the Federal High Court in Lagos where Belgore and Sulaiman are being tried for alleged money laundering involving 450m.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission charged Belgore and Sulaiman with five counts.
Charged along with the SAN and the ex-minister is Diezani, who is said to “still be at large.”
The EFCC had earlier arraigned Belgore and Sulaiman on February 8, 2017, but they were re-arraigned on Monday on an amended charge which included the name of Diezani.
Upon their re-arraignment on Monday, Belgore and Sulaiman pleaded not guilty to the five charges just as they had earlier done.
