Mr. Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has reportedly met with the National Crime Agency in the United Kingdom over the extradition of a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The anti-graft had few weeks ago reported that the extradition process of Mrs. Diezani who served under the administration of Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan had begun.

The EFCC further stated that Magu also met with the officials in the UK to discuss efforts of the commission to recover all ill-gotten assets by Nigeria’s politicians.

“Outside the recovery of assets, the EFCC boss in the course of the high power meeting with officials of the NCA will also present the commission’s position on ways to fast-track the extradition of all PEPs who have found safe havens in foreign jurisdiction,” the anti-graft said.

“For instance, speaking on the former minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Deziani Alison-Madueke, whose process of extradition from the UK has commenced, Magu explained that having waited for three years, the Nigerian government believes that it is time to initiate the extradition process,” EFCC added.
