As part of the list of assets forfeited by Diezani Alison-Madueke, former petroleum minister, personal effects like bras and waist trainers are not left out.

Diezani had fled the county shortly before former President Goodluck Jonathan handed over to President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

She is alleged to have stolen $2.5 billion from the Nigerian government while she was minister — an allegation she has denied.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has since commenced a process to extradite her.

The federal government has gained forfeiture of Diezani’s properties located in Banana Island Foreshore Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos, including 18 flats and six penthouses.

Other properties listed include 125 wedding gowns, 13 small gowns, 41 waist trainers, 73 hard flowers, 11 suits, 11 invisible bras, 73 veils, 30 braziers, two standing fans, 17 magic skirts, six blankets, one table blanket and 64 pairs of shoes.

The federal government has begun the process of screening 613 independent valuers expected to manage the sale of the assets permanently forfeited.

    This is very sexist! In all the times men have been embezzling from Nigeria, the government has never put their underwear up for sale. As a woman, I find this so humiliating! By all means seize her assets, that is punishment enough

        Clement may you for once be able to think for yourself.
        Look at that woman’s pictures with all the wealth she has and the status she reached home and abroad it’s diamond bra she would wear. She has only wore pearls in all her outings.
        Think for once.

      I want to believe that this response of yours is actually sarcasm, right? A bra costing over a $100 million dollars should surely be sexist.

    Hushmummy was busy looting during her time as Petroleum Minister. And when she was not helping herself to funds, she was busy insulting media men and women. The media people are now laughing. Dele Olojede in particular must be laughing and cackling so hard his ribs will hurt. Great job by Next.
