The international corruption case Eni/Shell – Nigeria is close to an end
The Court of Milan has accepted as evidence, emails involving former Nigerian Attorney General of the Federation, Adoke Bello, and JPMorganChase bank officials in the Malabu oil deal. The court prosecutors acquired the evidence from the UK authorities where it emerged that the former AGF under former President Goodluck Jonathan sent instructions of transfer of $1.1billion paid by Eni and Shell from the email address of Mr. Aliyu Abubakar, known as “Mr. Corruption”. The Milan court denied Adoke’s claim that the email was not his. Adoke had last week issued a statement, accusing the Italian prosecutor of fabricating evidence against him. The trial is about to come to an end and a court judgment is expected by middle of March 2021.
