- Wants her extradited
‘Our Mumu Don Do’, the group that organised the #ResumeorResign protests over the last medical vacation of President Muhammadu Buhari, has said it will begin another round of protests on Monday.
According to online news medium, Premium Times, this time, its demand is for the federal government to seek extradition of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to Nigeria for prosecution over the corruption allegations made against her.
Alison-Madueke is in the United Kingdom where she is receiving treatment for cancer but is also being investigated for money laundering.
“Following recent mind-boggling allegations of corruption and wanton looting of public funds and the collective patrimony of Nigerian citizens by the former Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, we call on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apply for her extradition from the United Kingdom, to face prosecution in Nigeria,” the group said in a statement.
“Furthermore, a Federal High Court has ordered Mrs. Alison-Madueke to permanently forfeit several luxurious properties in several highbrow areas across the country to the federal government.
“It is therefore unimaginable that the federal government is not pushing for Mrs. Alison-Madueke’s extradition to face punishment for her alleged crimes.
“In this light, we will be holding a two-day sit out in front of the EFCC headquarters to demand that the federal government applies for her extradition and prosecution in Nigeria,” the group said.
The group, in the statement signed by its co-conveners, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, and Deji Adeyanju, said it would hold the sit out from 9 to 10 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday in front of EFCC’s office in Abuja.
