The Internet was yesterday awashed with frail-looking photographs of ex-Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke. The former minister who is under investigation by the United Kingdom’s National Crime Agency for alleged bribery and money laundering, is undergoing cancer treatment in London. Diezani had been alleged to be responsible for missing $20 billion oil fund though she has repeatedly denied the allegations.
In the pictures released on Instagram and Twitter by the publisher of Ovation magazine, Dele Momodu, Alison-Madueke was seen sporting a scarf around her shoulders with her usually turbaned head left unveiled, showing a significant loss of hair. Several Nigerians have expressed mixed reactions over the pictures.
