The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has promised to extradite the former minister of petroleum, Diezani Alison Madueke.

The EFCC scribe, Emmanuel Aremo made this known while speaking with protesters who were led by entertainer, Charles Oputa also known as Charly Boy.

The protesters had stormed the Abuja office of the EFCC to demand for the repatriation of Alison-Madueke, following several accusations of corruption levelled against her.

Aremo also told the protesters that the EFCC will follow due process, adding that there is an agreement with the British Government on repatriation.

He said “We have an MOU with the British Government, we have bilateral agreements on how to repatriate citizens and that is being followed. The Ministry of Justice is taking steps and we are also taking steps but one thing I will let you know is that we are not relenting in our efforts.”

Speaking on behalf of the protesters, Deji Adeyanju also called on the anti-graft agency not to wait for the Federal Government before taking action.

According to Daily Post,  Charly Boy also said “I am here to give support and ginger the youths who have finally decided to wake up from their docility and their slumber. We are here to force a discussion on this war on corruption. Is it only being fought on the pages of newspapers and why haven’t we had a conviction so far and why haven’t the guilty been punished so far?

“So, I am here to join the exceptional Nigerian youths to ask questions and hold the government accountable to the promises that have been made.

“If they cannot get a conviction for Diezani there (in London), let them bring her back home. Our eyes are on the Diezani matter and I am hoping that it won’t be business as usual.”

Diezani Alison-Mdueke has constantly stated that she did not steal any money from Nigeria when she served as the minister of petroleum.
