"No Need To Bring Diezani To Nigeria For Trial"- Abubakar Malami.
Abubakar Malami, the attorney-general of the federation
has said that Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum resources, will not be brought back to Nigeria for trial as demanded by her.....
Malami said since she is already facing charges of money laundering in the United Kingdom, “it is important to face the charges there than for her to come as a mere witness in a case in Nigeria”.
Speaking to the media after the federal executive council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, Malami said the federal government “will not take any decision that will jeopardise what the UK government is doing”.
“If Nigeria feels strongly that there is need to bring Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke here to face charges of corruption, government will not hesitate to do that,” he said.
As things are now, there is no need for that since the UK government is already investigating her and government will not take any decision that will jeopardise what the UK government is doing.
