LAGOS, April 5 (Reuters) - Former Nigerian oil minister Diezani Alison-Madueke has been charged with money laundering, the country's financial crimes agency said on Wednesday.
Alison-Madueke, described as "at large" on the charge sheet, was accused of bribing members of the National Electoral Commission (INEC) before the 2015 national election, according to a statement by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
She was not present to enter a plea when the charges were read out at the Federal High Court in Lagos.
