An Estate Agent, Adeyemi Edun, who helped ex-Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, buy properties and launder billions of naira allegedly in the United Kingdom, UK, has been arrested in Nigeria.
Recall that the former Petroleum Minister is held up in the UK, where she is being investigated for money laundering.
Edun was detained as he arrived Nigeria, and is currently being held at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, office in Ikoyi, Lagos, multiple sources said.
“He is being held as part of investigations into Diezani’s multiple corrupt schemes”, an official of the Counter-Terrorism and General Intelligence Unit handling the EFCC investigation revealed.
“I can confirm the arrest, but I am not able to give details at this stage”, EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said.
The UK revealed that Edun was named in US court documents, as having links to an alleged money laundering scandal swirling around Mrs Alison-Madueke. 

The court papers said he had ‘assisted’ various Nigerian Businessmen with the purchase of £8.3 million of prime London real estate, intended ‘for the use and benefit’ of Alison-Madueke, in March 2011.
