The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has made another request to the United Kingdom to extradite Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum resources, who allegedly stole over $2.5 billion while in office.
EFCC had filed a case of money laundering against Diezini, who later left the country for the United Kingdom owing to those acusations.
Magu who spoke during a press conference in Kaduna on Monday, said;
“I was in London this year, we did investigation together with the UK team, and anywhere I go I always call for extradition of corrupt Nigerians to return back the money.”
“This woman has stolen so much, not less than 2.5 billion dollars, but unfortunately she has generation of looters who are supporting her. This is not good.
“We are in touch with the international community, she is under protective custody, otherwise, we would have arrested her, return her to Nigeria.
“We will not allow corruption to work here in Nigeria because it is destructive and disastrous. We blocked several accounts.”
