The plea is guilty or not guilty. You are a real witch if you are guilty and should be hunted.
There are strong indications that Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, a former Governor of Bayelsa, might be extradited to the United Kingdom, despite being pardoned by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
This hint was given by The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, who said "there is a pact between Britain and Nigeria which obliges us to extradite offenders who they are looking for."
According to Punch Newspapers, Sagay also said “Alamieyeseigha allegedly committed a separate crime by laundering money in Britain and that is not a crime in Nigeria but a crime against British Criminal Law and so, Goodluck Jonathan cannot pardon him for that.”
Adding that “This is the new defence for criminal prosecution which is being drummed up in Nigeria. It does not exist in law. Witch-hunt has never been a defence in court. The plea is guilty or not guilty. You are a real witch if you are guilty and should be hunted.”
