Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Wednesday, vowed that he would try all possible means to extradite the former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Allison-Madueke, before the end of the year to face her corruption charges in Nigeria.

He berated the UK security partners giving unnecessary protection to the former minister from facing the law.

The EFCC boss dropped the hints on Wednesday during his visit to the Ibadan Zonal Office of the commission where he was received by the Zonal Head, Mr Friday Ebelo, accompanied by other top officials.

“Yes, definitely. I don’t know why they are protecting her.

“Let them release her and let her come back to Nigeria.

“They are giving her protection, for whatever reason and they are yet to disclose whatever offence she has committed, they are only relying on the evidences that we have recovered.

“ So, they are not serious people but they are our partners and we work together.

“They are helping us and we help them too, it’s a two way relationship, just like we are collaborating with you people (media), you abuse us sometimes and at other times you speak well of us’, he said.
