EFCC to Secure Deziani’s Extradition This Year, Says Magu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has promised to perfect the process of securing the return of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to the country to face graft charges preferred against her.

The anti-graft commission also disclosed that it would initiate a ’10 million man match’ against corruption and corrupt individuals in Nigeria, February 14, Valentine’s Day.

The acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, made the disclosure during an official visit to the Ibadan Zonal Office of the commission where he was received by the Zonal Head of EFCC, Mr Friday Ebelo, in company with other officials of the commission.

Magu, who said the agency had reviewed its operational strategy, stressed that the EFCC was engaging foreign partners to ensure that the former minister returned to the country soon.

He expressed dissatisfaction at the slow pace of investigation by the foreign partners, especially those relating to the trial of the former minister, saying she should have been released to face charges being preferred against her at home in view of the overwhelming evidences against her in Nigeria.
