Court Orders EFCC, DSS To Produce Diezani In 72 Hours
A Federal High Court Judge has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Department of State Services (DSS), and the Nigerian Police Force to produce former Petroleum Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke, within 72 hours. Diezani though currently living in London is facing a corruption probe by EFCC, which has been trying to extradite her to Nigeria.
Justice Valentine Ashi of a Federal Capital Territory High Court, who gave the order on Tuesday 4th Dec in Abuja, may not be aware that Diezani does not live in Nigeria, as she has ordered all security agencies to apprehend and arrest Diezani within 72 hours. The Judge made the order after the EFCC counsel Msuur Denga, prayed for an order to issue a warrant of arrest against Madueke, so that the Commission can apprehend and arraign her for the alleged financial crimes she committed.
