Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), says the UK is protecting Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum.

Speaking during an official visit to the Ibadan zonal office of the commission on Wednesday, the EFCC boss wondered why the UK was “protecting her” when there is enough evidence “to take her to court”.

“They have not taken her to court and this is the fifth year. Why should you be investigating a case for five years? It is a straight toward case and not murder case which takes long processes,” he said.

“You know it is a financial crime investigation. It is a straight forward case. If you don’t have sufficient evidence to take her to court, bring her back. We have more than enough evidence to take her to court.

“I don’t know why they are protecting her. Release her and let her come back to Nigeria. They are giving her protection for whatever reason known to them.

“They are yet to declare any pieces of evidence recovered against her. They are still relying on our evidence.”

On the fight against corruption, Magu; “We are collaborating with everybody. We are collaborating with Nigerians in the diaspora, those who live outside. We are collecting a lot of information from them and that is our strength in getting them. ”

“We also want to collaborate with Nigerians in Nigeria so that they will give us information to expose looters and get them to return their loots.”
