EFCC Commends Diezani's Arraignment in London Court for Alleged Bribery Charges

By Mo Hanif

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) expressed its satisfaction with the recent arraignment of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, at the Westminister's Court in London, United Kingdom. The charges against her pertain to alleged bribery allegations.

While the charges brought against Diezani in the London court differ from the13-count charges of money laundering filed against her by the EFCC, it is important to emphasize that criminal acts should not go unpunished, regardless of jurisdictional boundaries. The money laundering charges against Madueke span multiple countries, including Dubai, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Nigeria.

In an effort to bring the former Minister to trial in Nigeria, an arrest warrant has been obtained, and extradition proceedings are underway. The EFCC remains committed to ensuring that justice is served and that those involved in criminal activities face the consequences of their actions.

Diezani Alison-Madueke's case has drawn significant attention due to the magnitude of the alleged offenses and the international cooperation required to bring her to justice. The EFCC continues to work diligently to uncover the truth and hold accountable those responsible for financial crimes, both within and outside Nigeria's borders.
