The EFCC has obtained an arrest warrant for the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
This news was confirmed by Dele Oyewale, the spokesperson for the EFCC.
Additionally, the anti-corruption agency has started the process of extraditing her to Nigeria. It’s worth noting that Alison-Madueke appeared in court in the United Kingdom, facing bribery allegations.
These charges in the UK differ from the 13-count money laundering charges previously brought against her by the EFCC.
The EFCC further stated, “It is instructive to note that criminality is criminality, irrespective of jurisdictional differences. No crime can go unpunished.
“The money laundering charges for which Madueke is answerable to the EFCC cover jurisdictions in Dubai, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Nigeria.
“To bring the former minister to trial in Nigeria, an arrest warrant has been obtained, and extradition proceedings have been initiated.
“The commission is on course on her trial. She will soon have her day in our courts,” he added.
