EFCC boss calls on United Kingdom to extradite Diezani Alison

Diezani Alison Madueke

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has asked the United Kingdom to extradite a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The acting Chairman of the anti-graft agency, Ibrahim Magu, made the appeal while addressing reporters on Monday in Kaduna State.

He stated that the former minister should be extradited on the ground that she allegedly stole a sum of $2.5 billion belonging to the Nigerian government and must, therefore, account for it.

He revealed that the EFCC was already in touch with the international community to facilitate the extradition of the former minister.
