EFCC confirms moves to repatriate Alison-Madueke

THE  Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Sunday affirmed that the process of extraditing ex- Minister of Petroleum, Deziani Alison-Madueke, has begun.

Mr Tony Orilade, the acting spokesman of the commission confirmed this in Abuja.

Orilade hinted that there have been calls from different quarters for the extradition of the former minister over several allegations of impropriety against her.

The commission’s mouthpiece added that the EFCC’s operations department has made a presentation to the legal department to commence the process.

He, however, informed that the action had to be processed through the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation.

A Federal High Court in Lagos, had in 2017, ordered the final forfeiture of N7.6 billion alleged loot recovered from the former Minister to the Federal Government, based on an application by the EFCC.
