Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has vowed that the
anti-graft agency would ensure that former Minister of Petroleum
Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, is repatriated to Nigeria to face
criminal charges against her.
Magu made the vow in Ibadan, Oyo state today Wednesday, January
22nd 2020, while fielding questions from journalists during his working
visit to the Commission’s Ibadan zonal office. He earlier told
journalists when he was at the Ilorin Zonal Office on a working visit
He said the Commission had traced a number of criminal activities
ranging from abuse of office, bribery, fraud, misuse of public funds and
money-laundering to the former minister, who is currently at large to
avoid questions on alleged criminal activities dotting her years as a
minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The anti-graft chairman, who wondered why her current country of
abode has not surrendered her to Nigeria to face justice, said the EFCC
would do everything within its power to get her prosecuted this year.
Diezani who was the Minister of Petroleum Resources during the
Goodluck Jonathan administration has been accused of a wide range of
financial impropriety while she was in office. She currently
resides in the United Kingdom.
