Nollywood actor, Aremu Afolayan, has purportedly gone haywire as he rains curses on the ex-Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, for allegedly stealing billions of Naira from Nigeria. Aremu is one of the sons of the late famous theatre and filmmaker, Ade Love. Actor, Aremu Afolayan rains curses on Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Aremu, who is arguably the most outspoken of the Afolayan brothers, is known for his non-partisan stance. He is also one of the few Nigerian celebrities to openly condemn a Nigerian public office holder on social media.

His rants comes as a result of the ongoing revelations in a U.S. court case that Mrs. Alison-Madueke, and two of her business associates, Jide Omokore and Kola Aluko, spent about $144 million on property.
The actor shared a video on Instagram on Wednesday where he blamed her “kind” for the reason Nigerians flee the country in search of greener pastures. He spared no words as he described the embattled ex-minister as a ‘mad person’ whose life won’t end well. He also alleged that she stole over N27 trillion which belonged to Nigeria.
He shared a video on his Instagram page which he captioned: “Haaa. Aiye Deziani koni daaah…. aiye Iya toh bi Deziani ko de tuni daaah! 90 billion dollars recovered from her converted to naira is 27 Trillion nairaaa…. haaaaaa. Melo ni waaa ni Nigeria… 170million. A shey waa ya werey bayiii. We can not fight,we can only rant on social media, shame on nigerians #LONGLIVESCAREDNIGERIAN.”
Aremu’s courses, delivered in Yoruba language, when translated reads: “It shall not be well with Deziani, I’m laughing yes but it shall not be well for her mother and for Deziani herself.” Federal government collected 90billion dollars, aside the 13 billion pounds retrieved from her.
“If they convert the 90 billion dollars to naira, that will be 27 trillion naira. In a country of 170 million people, if they should share that money evenly among everybody; each person will get 153 million naira.
“It will not be well for you Deziani, you make the people suffer, make us travel abroad to have kids, make embassy turn down even an actor’s visa because they think we are fraud. It shall not be well for your mother and those that have been eating the money with you. And those in the federal government the people shall remove your heart and place it in your hands.”
Meanwhile, Mrs. Alison-Madueke, who is reported to be receiving treatment for cancer in the United Kingdom, is already facing a series of multi-billion-dollar fraud-related investigations by Nigerian and UK authorities.
Last February, a Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the forfeiture of N34 billion linked to her but stashed in several Nigerian banks.
