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 is brought to justice.

Despite his refusal to identify the individual in question, all fingers seemed to point at former Petroleum Resources Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke, who is believed to have embezzled $20 million from the accounts of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
