Charly Boy leads protest for Diezani’s extradition for alleged corruption

Mr Charles Oputa, also known as “Charly Boy” on Monday led the “Our Mumu Don Do” Movement to the headquarters of EFCC, in Abuja to demand the extradition of Diezani Allison-Madueke from the United Kingdom for trial over corruption allegations.

Our correspondent reports that the “Our Mumu Don Do” Movement is a coalition of civil society groups that advocate good governance and corruption-free leadership at all levels of government.

Charly Boy, who spoke on behalf of the group, with the hash tag “#BringBackDiezani” urged the EFCC to take urgent steps to ensure that the embattled former minister of petroleum is brought back.

“Following recent mind-boggling allegations of corruption and looting of public funds by the former Minister for Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke, we call on the EFCC to bring her back for trial.

“It could be recalled that Federal High Court has ordered her to permanently forfeit several luxurious properties in several high brow areas across the country to the Federal Government.

“Nigerians are suffering, while she, like many other looters, is enjoying in London.

“Let her come and clear herself, and if that is not possible, let them assist the United Kingdom to prosecute her, because corruption must not go unpunished,” Charly Boy said.

The maverick entertainer and activist maintained that the group was set to stage a series of daily sit-out in front of the EFCC headquarters until their demand was met.

Responding on behalf of the commission , the Secretary to the EFCC, Mr.Emmanuel Aremu, said that the commission would take necessary steps to ensure that Diezani was repatriated to answer the allegations.

He, however, urged the group to exercise patience while keeping faith with the commission as it delivers on its anti-graft mandate, saying that due process must be followed in the Diezani’s case.
