Court refuses to grant extradition order against former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke lindaikejisblog

An application to extradite former Minister of Petroleum Deizani Alison-Madueke from the United Kingdom, has been struck out by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. 

This came after the prosecution counsel, Farouk  Abdalla informed the court that the defendant had failed to appear in court in spite of notice of summons for her appearance that was published in a national daily and the EFCC’s website on August 20.

Ruling on the application, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu stated that another extradition request can be made after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) provides proof to support claim of earlier court summon failing in the extradition of Deizani. 

She added that an extension order be made, as the prosecution needed to file an affidavit to support the warrant for extradition. Justice Ojukwu granted the prosecution more time to perfect every necessary document and file the same, before adjourning the case till December 3 for hearing.
