EFCC secures arrest warrant for Diezani Alison-Madueke



Diezani Alison Madueke1 e1500205543459

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) welcomes, with keen interest, the arraignment of a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, at the Westminister’s Court in London, United Kingdom, following alleged bribery allegations.

Although the charges preferred against her at the London court are diametrically different from the 13-count charges bordering on money laundering the EFCC has raised against her, it is instructive to note that criminality is criminality, irrespective of jurisdictional differences.

No crime can go unpunished.

The money laundering charges for which Madueke is answerable to the EFCC cover jurisdictions in Dubai, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Nigeria.

To bring the former minister to trial in Nigeria, an arrest warrant has been obtained and extradition proceedings have been initiated.

The Commission is on course for her trial.

She will soon have her day in our courts.
