Just In: EFCC says Diezani Alison-Madueke will be extradited from the UK

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed that the process for the extraditing former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke from the United Kingdom has started.

This was disclosed by the Acting Spokesman of the Commission, Tony Orilade, in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.

According to Orilade, EFCC’s Operations Department has made a presentation to the Legal Department to commence the process, and that process has commenced.

It is ongoing. Within the next few weeks, the extent to which we have gone will be made known to the public.

It is not a fresh case; it is not a fresh petition that is just being looked into; the whole process is a total package.

This extradition is just an aspect of Diezani’s investigation and commencement of trial,” he said.

Alison-Madueke, who is being investigated in the UK, had urged the Federal Government to bring her back to the country to face corruption charges against her.

But, Malami said that bringing her back to the country would jeopardise the investigation being carried on her in the UK.
