This is even as reports say
Diezani was arrested in London, UK, today, by the newly formed International Corruption Unit (ICU) of the country’s National Crimes Agency.
The agency announced on its website on Friday that it had arrested five people “across London” as part of an investigation into suspected bribery and money laundering offences but stopped short of naming the suspects.
The operations it was gathered were being coordinated with several international agencies because of the “sensitive” nature of the investigation.
EFCC made “significant recovery” of documents at the Abuja  residence of the former minister, a senior security source said.
“The raid on her Asokoro residence today (Friday) yielded vital information that will help in the prosecution of the case,” the source said.
