Charly Boy To Begin Fresh Protests Over Diezani
Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, led a group of youths to protest the continuous stay of President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
He was almost lynched in the process, but he escaped with his heads held up high.
Many people have even attributed the return of Baba from the 103-day medical vacation to his ‘Our Mumu Don Do’ protests.
This time, its demand is for the Nigerian government to seek extradition of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to Nigeria for prosecution over corruption allegations made against her.
Alison-Madueke is in the United Kingdom where she is believed to be receiving treatment for cancer but is also being investigated for money laundering.
“Following recent mind-boggling allegations of corruption and wanton looting of public funds and the collective patrimony of Nigerian citizens by the former Minister for Petroleum, Diezani Allison-Madueke, we call on the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apply for her extradition from the United Kingdom to face prosecution in Nigeria,” the group said.
“Furthermore, a Federal High Court has ordered Mrs Allison-Madueke to permanently forfeit several luxurious properties in several highbrow areas across the country to the federal government.
“It is therefore unimaginable that the federal government is not pushing for Allison-Madueke’s extradition to face punishment for her alleged crimes.
“In this light, we will be holding a 2-day sit out in front of the EFCC Headquarters to demand that the federal government applies for her extradition and prosecution in Nigeria.”
The group, in the statement signed by its co-conveners, Charles Oputa and Deji Adeyanju, said it would hold the sit out from 9 to 10 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday at the front of EFCC office in Abuja.
