Justice Valentine Ashi has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Department of State Services (DSS) and other security agencies to arrest Diezani Alison-Madueke within 72 hours.

Alison-Madueke served as minister of petroleum resources during the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan and has been in the UK since Muhammadu Buhari came into office.

The Cable reports that the judge of the Federal Capital Territory high court on Tuesday, December 4, ordered that the former minister be arrested within 72 hours.

The order was given following an ex parte motion made before the court by Msuur Denga, counsel to the EFCC.

Denga “prayed for an order of the court to issue a warrant of arrest against Madueke, to enable the commission apprehend and arraign her for alleged financial crimes in Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the EFCC confirmed that the process for extraditing Deziani Alison-Madueke from the United Kingdom had begun.

The former minister is expected to be extradited from Britain as part of investigation over N47.2 billion and $487.5million reportedly traced to her.
