Jide Omokore Invited by EFFC for questioning in regards to Diezani's Case

Chairman of Atlantic Energy, Jide Omokore, who is a strong ally of embattled former Petroleum minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, was on Monday October 5th invited to the Abuja office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, as part of the ongoing investigations into the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

Omokore was invited by the Subsidy Unit of the EFCC, which is handling the probe of NNPC and all its transactions while Diezani served as Minister.

He arrived the EFCC headquarters on Monday afternoon and was quizzed for several hours. He was later released on administrative bail.
"I don’t think it would be right to say that he was arrested as he came to the office on his own and was interrogated. He was later released to go on administrative bail.” a source told Punch
