Counsel to the federal government, Dipo Okpeseyi (SAN), in an affidavit attached to the suit filed alleged that the defendants unlawfully diverted a profit of about $1.8bn due to it on crude oil which they lifted and sold.
The lawyer stated that the accused also bought another set of vehicles worth over N130m and gave them out to Diezani and some other management staff members of the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company.
Oginni said Aluko, among others, also used part of the allegedly diverted funds to purchase a 26-flat property at 46, Gerrard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos for which he made part payments of $18,548,619.99 and N1,070,000,000 to FBN Mortgages Limited.
