72 Hours Deadline: Why EFCC May Not Get Diezani – Magu
The acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes commission, (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has said that the commission does not need upto 72 hours given by the court to produce a former minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to face her corruption charges, stating that the only problem the commission has is that she is being held “in another man’s country.
Magu made this known in a statement signed by acting spokesperson of the EFCC, Tony Orilade.
Expressing optimism with complying with the court order, Magu said: “We will comply with the court order. In fact, it is in our character to do so. If we won’t comply with the court order, that means we have reasons to appeal against the court decision. We need less than 72 hours to produce Diezani. But she is being prosecuted by other law enforcement agencies outside this country. This is our predicament.
