    This is sheer inanity. Somebody hates this woman and wants her downfall so badly. It’s like they think no good think can come out of Nigeria talk less of a woman, do they think that a woman cannot hold such a post as petroleum minister and be blameless? Besides, the British law enforcement should also know that this is a citizen of another country, and not under their jurisdiction to harass and bully anyhow due to hearsay and rumors.

      Asinine comments such as yours, makes me snivel when I think about Nigeria’s future. Folks are snaffling up our resources, you are talking about jurisdiction. She lost that right, the moment she started laundering money using British financial institutions.

      Punish Deziani no sympathy but also Punish Atiku, Amaechi, Fayemi, Sylvia, Abubarka Audu,Tinubu,Fashola, Elrufai,Rochas, and any one who has stolen from Nigeria!!!

      Deziani hands may not be clean but is Alpha Beta owner hands clean???? Was it their salaries they used in funding buhari election????

      Sorry, which evidence have you seen? Is it legitimate evidence or rumours? I am an advocate for locking up all the country’s looters but without evidence, the defendant will be released…please point me in the direction of the evidence you have seen

      Oh my god. I just lost brain cell reading your uneducated comment? . I am an attorney and the U.K DOES have jurisdiction. How can you say that the UK does not have Jurisdiction over this matter (especially on it’s soil). I won’t even go into details because it wouldn’t make sense to school you – because as a popular saying goes : Don’t argue with fools, they will beat you with experience.

    This oil has punished Nigeria with resource curse.

    Can it dry up already? ???????
    There must be life without oil.
    Our fore fathers built great empires without it.
    Please dry up let’s see the real Nigerians. A country binder together by oil. S.MH.

      Ehh if Oil dried up today, Nigeria would blow up, we have no backups with a comparative advantage in the global economy, we would be dirt poor!! Oil is necessary, biko let’s not wish on our-selves what we can’t handle.

    This was not a solo Job. She better make a deal with authorities and start talking…13 billion pounds is impossible for someone to steal alone. There are heads of banks involved, ministers, governors, off shore accountants, lawyers…etc

    The way people justify corrupt officials makes me cringe for the future of this great nation. Yes , I still believe in its greatness. How can ANYONE support this under asinine comments like “UK jurisdiction” I’m not even a lawyer but honey where did u keep your brain?
    Yes , God answers prayers. The prayers of Nigerians who are suffering and don’t have food on their table, or can’t afford basic amenities while some people enjoy the splendour of stolen money.
    God will catch all of these people, one person at a time.
