Photos and details of a multi-million dollar home in Switzerland owned by Kola Aluko, a suspected money launderer for former President Goodluck Jonathan and Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke have been uncovered
Mr. Aluko’s palatial home is nestled in the beautiful canton of Ticino, in southern Switzerland. Ticino is renowned for its mild winters and boasts some of the highest number of sunshine hours in Switzerland.
In a week when UK law enforcement authorities arrested Mrs. Alison-Madueke in London and agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) searched her homes in Nigeria, Mr. Aluko was reportedly holed up in his Swiss mansion located at Catonale 17, 6948 Porza in Tocina, according to a source familiar with his whereabouts. Mr. Aluko is famous as one of the hitherto obscure individuals dusted up by the former Petroleum Minister to be fronts for her shady billion dollar schemes in the oil sector. A flamboyant man, Mr. Aluko relished his meteoric rise to stupendous wealth, purchasing villas, expensive cars, and a yacht, dating former supermodel Naomi Campbell, and partying with movie and entertainment stars in the UK, Europe and the US.
SaharaReporters had written several reports about Mr. Aluko’s role as one of the launderers of billions of dollars illicitly cornered by the embattled former Minister of Petroleum and former President Jonathan.
An investigation by SaharaReporters pointed to a falling out between Mr. Aluko, on the one hand, and Mrs. Alison-Madueke and Mr. Jonathan, on the other. The major contention was centered on Mr. Aluko’s indiscreet and flashy lifestyle, which triggered the former minister’s fears that his opulent acquisitions and taste could attract unwanted attention. According to sources close to both parties, the relations between Mrs. Alison-Madueke and her front soured badly after Mr. Aluko was seen in numerous photographs accompanied by Ms. Naomi Campbell. They said Mr. Aluko stopped traveling to Nigeria and absconded with a massive amount of looted money he was supposed to launder for Mr. Jonathan and the former Petroleum Minister.
