The owner of the Luxury Star Super Yacht Jay Z and Beyonce were recently spotted on during their European vacation is reportedly WANTED by the UK government in connection to the Diezani Alison-Madueke arrest.
Kola Aluko, who was reported to have splashed $1.5 M on champagne at actor Leonardo Di Caprio‘s 39th birthday party in New York, had been spotted chilling with the likes of Sean “Diddy” Combs, Jamie Foxx and a lot of other music & film stars in recent times.
In connection to the Alison-Madueke arrest, it has been confirmed from the Attorney General’s Office in Switzerland that the United Kingdom has demanded Mutual Legal Assistance from Swiss authorities for the keeping of Aluko in custody.
Recall, Sahara Reporters claimed that Mr. Aluko’s is one of the launderers of billions of dollars illegally cornered by the embattled former Minister of Petroleum.
“The major contention was centered on Mr. Aluko’s indiscreet and flashy lifestyle, which triggered the former minister’s fears that his opulent acquisitions and taste could attract unwanted attention. According to sources close to both parties, the relations between Mrs. Alison-Madueke and her front soured badly after Mr. Aluko was seen in numerous photographs accompanied by Ms. Naomi Campbell. They said Mr. Aluko stopped traveling to Nigeria and absconded with a massive amount of looted money he was supposed to launder for Mr. Jonathan and the former Petroleum Minister. Kola Aluko’s Yacht named “Galactica Star”
Intelligence documents leaked to Sahara Reporters described Mr. Aluko as a “money launderer” and “money manager,” for elite politicians in Nigeria—especially Mrs. Alison-Madueke. The documents claimed that Mr. Aluko purchased several real estate properties in Los Angeles and New York for as much as $23 million.”
More information gathered says Mr. Aluko’s sudden wealth came from his ownership of Atlantic Energy, a shady firm that received generous oil export contracts from the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) six months before it was legally established as a company. Mrs. Alison-Madueke also recommended the award of at least five oil blocks to Atlantic Energy.
On Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari hinted that the Swiss and the UK government were collaborating with Nigeria to retrieve some of its stolen wealth and bring perpetrators of financial crimes to justice.
Hopefully, the Swizz government will have Aluko extradited to the United Kingdom to testify in the Diezani Alison-Madueke case, as many more culprits will also go down.
