The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has vowed to repatriate Alison-Madueke to Nigeria to face criminal charges against her.
This was made known by the acting chairman of the agency Ibrahim Magu, who said he would make sure the former Minister of Petroleum Resources faces her criminal charges.
The acting chairman made the vow in Ibadan, Oyo state while fielding questions from journalists during his working visit to the Commission’s Ibadan zonal office.
Ibrahim Magu said the Commission had traced a number of criminal activities ranging from abuse of office, bribery, fraud, misuse of public funds and money-laundering to the former minister, who is currently at large to avoid questions on alleged criminal activities dotting her years as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The anti-graft chairman, who wondered why her current country of abode has not surrendered her to Nigeria to face justice, said the EFCC would do everything within its power to get her prosecuted this year.
Diezani who was the Minister of Petroleum Resources during the Goodluck Jonathan administration has been accused of a wide range of financial impropriety while she was in office. She currently resides in the United Kingdom.
