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 yesterday.
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.
