The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday grilled Rear Admiral Amaechina Alison-Madueke, husband of the embattled former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.
The anti-graft agency seized his travel passport to restrict his movement to Nigeria, pending the conclusion of its investigation.
About two other ‘business associates’ of the ex-Minister were also said to be in EFCC’s custody’s last night. The arrest was said to be in connection with the ongoing probe of the activities of the ex-minister.
The National Crime Agency (NCA) in the United Kingdom (UK) arrested and quizzed Mrs Alison-Madueke and four others on October 2, last year for alleged bribery and corruption and money laundering.
An inside source said: “We have interrogated Rear Admiral Alison-Madueke as part of the ongoing probe of his wife, who is the immediate past Minister of Petroleum Resources.
“After interacting with him, he was granted administrative bail. But all his travelling documents are with us. Therefore, his movement has been restricted to the country pending the conclusion of this investigation.
“Certainly, we will still have another round of interaction with Madueke any moment from now.”
