New York Judge Orders 10 U.S Banks To Release Documents Relating To Money Laundering Allegations Against Ex-President Jonathan’s Wife

New York federal judge has ruled that Nigeria can subpoena 10 banks in the United States for information the country needs to prosecute government officials allegedly connected to a British Virgin Island engineering firm’s bribery scheme and subsequent $9.6bn arbitral claim, according to law360.com.

The Nigerian Government had last month asked the court to compel the banks to release account details of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, his wife, Patience, former ministers of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke and Rilwanu Lukman.
