Diezani Alison Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum, was on Monday spotted trekking on the streets of London.
Tweeting via @osquare78, the Nigerian who spotted Diezani said he was going to “ask her about our yams”, but she moved very fast away from him when she saw he wanted to take pictures.
“Guess who I just saw in NW, London? Diezani Alison Madueke,” he tweeted. “When she noticed I wanted to snap her, she quickly moved very fast away from me. I was gonna come down to ask her abt our yams, but the traffic was moving.”
Diezani, minister for eight straight years under the presidencies of Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan, ran to the UK after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), lost the 2015 presidential election but is facing multiple corruption allegations to the tune of billions of naira back home.
