The Acting Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, has asked Nigerians in Diaspora to put pressure on the United Kingdom to release former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to face trial over alleged corruption in Nigeria.
Magu, who made the plea during a Virtual Town Hall Meeting with Nigerians in Diaspora, anchored in London by the Host/Moderator of the group, Prince Ade Omole. assured Nigerians in the diaspora of business protection at home, stressing that local fraudsters frustrating diasporans from investing in Nigeria would henceforth be dealt with.
Magu expressed displeasure over the continued difficulties being faced by the EFCC to bring former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke to trial, stressing that Nigerians in the United Kingdom should form pressure groups to demand her trial.
He said: ”Nigerians in the United Kingdom need to collaborate with the EFCC more and pressure the authorities there to assist the EFCC in bringing Diezani to trial.
Does it not bother Nigerians in that country that Diezani has not been brought to trial for the heinous allegations of corruption against her in Nigeria?”he asked.
