Court to EFCC, DSS,Police: Produce Alison -Madueke Within 72 Hours

Justice Valentine Ashi of a Federal Capital Territory High Court, sitting in Apo, Abuja, on Tuesday, ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Nigerian Police Force, the Department of State Services (DSS) and all other security agencies to arrest a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, within 72 hours.

Alison-Madueke is currently in the United Kingdom.

The order was sequel to a motion ex parte made before the court by counsel to the EFCC, Msuur Denga, praying for an order of the court, to issue a warrant of arrest against Alison-Madueke, to enable the Commission apprehend and arraign her for alleged financial crimes in Nigeria.

A statement from the commission said the anti-graft agency commenced investigation of the former minister along with Jide Omokore, a former Chairman, Atlantic Energy Drilling Company, following a petition dated October 2, 2013, by Coalition against Corrupt Leaders, CACOL, accusing the duo of money laundering and official corruption.

The statement said investigations into the petition revealed that Alison-Madueke as supervising minister of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation was found to have engaged in illicit and monumental fraudulent dealings in oil transactions, which she entered into on behalf of the Federal Government.

Alison-Madueke and Omokore, are also alleged to have accepted and given gifts in properties located at Penthouse 22, Block B, Admiralty Estate, Ikoyi, and Penthouse 21, Building 5, Block C, Banana Island, Lagos. They are to be arraigned on February 25, 2019 on a five-count charge for the offences, which are contrary to Sections 26(1) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000.

The commission in the statement recalled that it filed application for warrant of arrest, condition precedent for Alison-Madueke’s extradition protocol to bring her back home to face trial at the last adjournment.

The prosecution told the court that Alison-Madueke, who is currently in the United Kingdom, jetted off while investigations into the alleged fraudulent acts were ongoing.

The court Tuesday granted the ex parte motion, and ordered the security agencies to provide Alison-Madueke within 72 hours, for her to face the charge preferred against her.

“The Inspector General of Police, the Chairman of the EFCC, the Attorney General, the Department of State Services, are hereby ordered in the name of the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria to apprehend and arrest the first defendant and produce her before this court for further directives within 72 hours”, the judge held.
