Court Orders EFCC, DSS, Police, To ‘Produce Diezani in 72 hours’


A Federal High Court Judge gave what appears to be an Herculean order to the EFCC, DSS and the police to produce Diezani Alison-Madueke, Former Petroleum Minister, within 72 hours.

Diezani, currently in London, is facing a probe by an anti-graft agency and the EFCC only recently began to explore the possibility of extraditing her to Nigeria.

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

“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, Justice Valentine Ashi ordered.
