The convener of the recent anti-Buhari ResumeOrResign protest arguably said to have forced President Muhammadu Buhari, Charles Oputa is set to take to street for another national issue.
Charly Boy, as the social media activist is fondly called, wrote a statement to covene his group to demand from the Federal Government the extradition of the former minister of petroleum, Madam Diezani Alison Madueke to face prosecution for alleged corruption in Nigeria.
“Following recent mind-boggling allegations of corruption and wanton looting of public funds and the collective patrimony of Nigerian citizens by the former minister for petroleum, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, we call on the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to
apply for her extradition from the United Kingdom to face prosecution in Nigeria,” Charly Boy said in the statement.
“Furthermore, a federal high court has ordered Mrs. Alison-Madueke to permanently forfeit several luxurious
properties in several high brow 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”, Charly Boy announced.
Diezani Madueke is also currently facing corruption-related cases of money laundering in both US and UK.
