EFCC declares Diezani Madueke wanted back in Nigeria

The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has declared that former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Madueke is wanted back in Nigeria to face corruption charges.

Speaking at a press briefing in Abuja on Monday, the EFCC boss said after three years of investigation in the United Kingdom no charges have been filed against her in the UK courts.

He said, however that investigations into her case have been concluded by the EFCC in Nigeria.

Recall that Madueke, who served as Petroleum Minister during the last administration of Goodluck Jonathan, was arrested in October 2015, by the UK’s National Crime Agency, NCA, in London, along with four other people on suspicion of corruption offences.

Magu said, “I think three years is sufficient for you to take her [Diezani] to court.

“There is no court process against her in the UK. Nobody is prosecuting her there.”
