Naija News reports that the EFCC had commenced the process to extradite the former minister following allegations of money laundering.
Recall that Alison-Madueke had left the country for the UK shortly before the inception of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Speaking to newsmen in Kaduna on Monday, Ibrahim Magu accused the former minister of stealing not less than $2.5 billion.
He also revealed that Diezani Alison-Madueke was under protective custody in the United Kingdom.
The EFCC chairman said: “I was in London this year, we did investigation together with the UK team, and anywhere I go I always call for the extradition of corrupt Nigerians to return back the money.
“This woman has stolen so much, not less than 2.5 billion dollars, but unfortunately she has generation of looters who are supporting her. This is not good.
“We are in touch with the international community, she is under protective custody, otherwise, we would have arrested her, return her to Nigeria.
“We will not allow corruption to work here in Nigeria because it is destructive and disastrous. We blocked several accounts.”
