EFCC criticizes UK over slow action on Diezani’s corruption case.

Acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Mr Ibrahim Magu, has expressed concern over the slow pace of action from the United Kingdom (UK) on the corruption case, involving Diezani Alison-Madueke.

Report says that former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani, is being prosecuted by the UK government on issues of corruption.

EFCC spokesman, Mr Tony Orilade in a statement in Abuja, quoted Magu to have said this when he received the team of International Criminal Police Organisation (InterPol) in his office.

Magu regretted that the matter had dragged on in the UK for more than four years with no visible result and no end in sight.

According to reports the case of Diezani which has been going on for over four years involving about 2.4 billion dollars, however, no kobo has been recovered from overseas.

Magu, however, noted that the commission’s relationship with InterPol had made it easier to place suspects on red notice.
