Diezani’s application is bizarre and a misuse of court processes. I won’t allow ‘myself to be used to frustrate your impending trial in the United Kingdom’ Justice Rilwan Aikawa of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday dismissed the joinder application by the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, in a N500million money laundering suit filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Justice Aikawa also held that the application is not only an abuse of court processes but also a deliberate ploy by the former minister to run away from justice in the United Kingdom (UK). The EFCC had dragged Mr Dele Belgore (SAN) alongside the former Minister of National Planning, Prof Abubakar Sulaiman, before the judge over alleged involvement in N500million fraud while the commission named Diezani as an accomplice in the criminal trial. But the anti-graft agency informed the court that the ex-minister was at large while Diezani later filed the joinder application, asking the court to join her in the suit on the grounds that she is an interested party. In his verdict on Diezani’s application, Justice Aikawa described the application as abuse of court processes, saying that her request to be joined in the suit lacked merit. The judge said, “ The applicant (Diezani’s) application is bizarre and a misuse of court processes. I won’t allow myself to be used to frustrate the applicant’s impending trial in the United Kingdom. This is not the proper time to join the applicant as a defendant.
