President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that one of Nigeria's biggest corruption suspects is currently residing in the United Kingdom.
Buhari said this during an interview with The Telegraph.
He said his government would put its trust in British officials to ensure that the unnamed suspect was brought to justice.
Despite his refusal to identify the individual in question, all fingers seemed to point to former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is believed to have embezzled $20m from the accounts of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
Buhari also said that he had enlisted the co-operation of the British National Crime Agency (NCA) in prosecuting individuals found guilty of corrupt dealings.
According to Nigerian publication Osun Defender, Alison-Madueke was arrested in October of last year in London by British officials.
