 The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), a civil society group, on Wednesday asked the federal government to demand extradition of Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum from Britain.

In a statement, the group said as Britain hosts the anti corruption summit in London, it should refuse to provide a “sanctuary” for corrupt Nigerian officials.

“The anti-corruption summit in London provides an important opportunity for the UK government to support the ongoing fight against corruption in Nigeria,” Adetokunbo Mumuni, SERAP’s executive director, said

“It is also to send a powerful message that the UK will not provide sanctuary for corrupt public officials or condone impunity.

“As a party to the UN Convention against Corruption, the UK government can use the convention as a basis for the extradition of Mrs Alison-Madueke to Nigeria.

SERAP urged the Nigerian government to submit a request for the extradition of Alison-Madueke or file a civil action suit against her in UK courts.

“The allegations of corruption against her are strong enough for Prime Minister David Cameron to facilitate an extradition proceeding,” h said.

SERAP also asked Cameron to facilitate the return of stolen money and stop institutions from providing “safe havens for corrupt funds” from Nigeria.

SERAP’s call comes just as Cameron was caught on camera saying Nigeria is a “fantastically corrupt” country.
