 An EFCC statement disclosed this on Thursday.

It reads in part: “Speaking on the former minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, whose process of extradition from the UK has commenced, Magu explained that having waited for three years, the Nigerian government believes that it is time to initiate the extradition process.”

A Federal High Court in Lagos in 2017 ordered the final forfeiture of N7.6 billion alleged loot recovered by the Commission from the beleaguered former minister.
