Leak: Nigeria most wanted fmr. minister appointed as commissioner in the Dominican Republic
Nigeria former minister of Petroleum under Dr. Goodluck Jonathan administration, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Maduekwe appoints as Commissioner for Trade and Investment in the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean Island where she was granted citizenship in 2015.
Dominican Republic has a population of just over 10 million people,making it smaller than some states in Nigeria.
Their official Language is Spanish and its capital is Santo Domingo.
The Carribean Island nation granted Diezani a citizenship in 2015 and five years after she is now a commissioner.
The current administration in Nigeria is accusing Diezani Allison-Maduekwe of grand corruption in the petroleum sector amounting to billions of dollar.
The former minister and some aides of Jonathan in the previous administration fled Nigeria after buhari election victory in 2015.
One of the key cabinet member that fled is Diezani Allison-Maduekwe who is now a commissioner in the Dominican Republic.
Her appointment was allegedly contained in a release by Roosevelt Skerrit,the Prime Minister of Commonwealth of Dominican Republic.
Despite her appointment, Diezani is still on the watchlist of Nigeria Anti-Graft agency, the EFCC.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC are insisting she has questions to answer bothering on money laundering.
The EFCC is accusing her and her proxies of laundering more than #40B while in office.
She denies the allegations leveled against her by the Anti-Graft agency and also pleads to be tried in United Kingdom.

The former minister was in the United Kingdom for months as the Nigerian Government struggles to extradite her.
With Allison-Maduekwe latest appointment, its now impossible for Nigerian Government to extradite her.
Her latest appointment from the Dominican Republic might see both countries go head-to-head.
It is capable of severing the international ties between the Nigerian Government and the Caribbean nation.
Nigeria and Dominican Republic are both part of the Commonwealth or Nations.
