Nigeria's former Minister of Petroleum Resources and current OPEC president, Diezani Alison-Madueke, is according to family members arrested in London.
The information comes after the British National Crime Agency (NCA) announced that five people have been arrested for international corruption in London.
NCA has not gone out with the names or ages of those arrested, but BBC writes that relatives of Allison-Madueke confirms that she's been arrested.
Alison-Madueke was Minister of Petroleum Resources for Nigeria from 2010 until May this year when Muhammadu Buhari won the presidential election over Goodluck Jonathan.
She was elected president of the OPEC organization, which represents twelve of the world's largest oil producing countries, on November 27 last year.
Nigerian media writes that the former Minister of Petroleum Resources is released on bail, but that the passport has been revoked and that she is ordered to stay at her address in London.
