The EFCC said this while confirming the arrest of Mr Nnamdi Okonkwo, former Managing Director of Fidelity Bank

In the past, the agency had detained Okonkwo, who was head of the bank when Madueke was a minister.

The ex-petroleum minister, who was one of the most influential government official under former President Goodluck Jonathan, has been on the run over corruption allegations.

In a statement on Wednesday, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said, “As part of the ongoing investigations into the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested a former Managing Director of Fidelity Bank Plc, Nnamdi Okonkwo, allegedly over an additional $72, 870,000million still in the coffers of the bank,” the statement reads.

“Okonkwo, who is currently the Chairman of First Bank Holding, alongside others, had earlier been grilled over a sum of $153million and $115million by the Commission.

“While all the $153 million was recovered by the EFCC, the cases involving $115million, as it relates with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, bribery matter, are in various courts.
