Diezani Madueke: EFCC Obtains Arrest Warrant, Initiates Extradition Proceedings

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC said it has obtained arrest warrant and initiated extradition proceedings against the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Allison Madueke to Nigeria for trials on alleged money laundering.

 

EFCC Acting Head, Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale who disclosed this in a press release issued to our correspondent on Monday said the Commission is on course on her trial.

He, also hailed the arraignment of the embattled former Minister at the Westminister’s Court in London, United Kingdom for alleged bribery allegations.

He added, ‘Although the charges preferred against her at the London court, are diametrically different from the 13-count charges bordering on money laundering the EFCC has raised against her, 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, United Kingdom, 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.”
