Malabu oil deals, EFCC Arrests ex-AGF Adoke @ Abuja Airport

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has taken into custody a former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke.

Adoke was arrested on Thursday after flying into the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates where he had been held by the International Police Organisation since November 11, 2019.

He was arrested by the Interpol Unit of the Nigeria Police Force which was waiting for him at the Abuja airport.

The Commissioner of Police in charge of the Interpol, Umar Garba, confirmed to The PUNCH that his men arrested and handed Adoke to the EFCC shortly after his arrival in Abuja.

He said, “We arrested the former AGF and handed him over to the EFCC which requested our assistance.”

Adoke was accompanied to Nigeria on the Emirates Airline flight 785 by Interpol officers from the UAE.

The EFCC confirmed this in a tweet on its verified Twitter handle on Thursday.

The commission also disclosed that the acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu had been meeting with UAE authorities over his plans to prosecute Adoke for his alleged involvement in the $1.1 billion Malabu oil scam.

The tweet read, “Former AGF, Mohammed Adoke has arrived in Nigeria from Dubai. The ex-AGF left Dubai following pressure from the EFCC.

“The aircraft departed the Emirati commercial capital at about 11 am (8am Nigerian time) and touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at about 3:45pm.

“Officials of the EFCC were on the ground at the airport when he arrived. The EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu and Dubai authorities have held a series of meetings in respect of the former attorney-general. He was accompanied by Interpol officers on Emirates Airlines flight 785,” it added.
