Dan Etete turns on his accomplices Eni and Shell

By John Donovan

The Premium Times reports that “Dan Etete, a former Minister of Petroleum caught at the heart of the $1.1 billion Malabu Oil scandal, has accused the Nigerian government of leaving out Shell and Agip in the criminal charges it filed last week.”

The same article went on to state that “Although Shell and ENI have repeatedly claimed they did not know the money was going to end up with Malabu, investigations in Nigeria and Italy, as well as leaked documents, revealed that claim to be false.”

According to THISDAY:

“Mr. Etete said the government erred in pursuing the case against him and others while conspicuously sparing Shell, Total and Agip/Eni even though the three firms were parties to all the agreements reached in the OPL 245 oil deal.” 

THISDAY cited a text message exchange it had with Mr. Etete.
