There have been calls from some many quarters for the extradition of former Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Allison- Madueke. But a trip to her community Yenaka Community, a small Island in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State by Saturday Telegraph, showed that the indigenes are saying that Diezani did not touch their lives in spite of the amount of money she is alleged to have stolen from the nation’s coffers.
A foster brother to the former Minister, Maxwell Agama, said: “If you look at the compound here, there is nothing to show that she was a minister and they are saying she stole money. She only gave us a walkway. “Her father’s house is there, nothing has been done.
We have a lot of land here, nothing. Even now that she has not done anything, they want to kill her. If she has done something don’t you think they would have killed her already? There are so many allegations which are not true. “I don’t have much to say because I don’t know what is happening. I don’t know whether she stole money or not. I’m a villager. I don’t go to anywhere. I have not been abroad. We don’t even talk, so I don’t actually know what is happening.
