Talking to reporters in Kaduna on Monday, the performing chairman of the anti-corruption agency, Ibrahim Magu, claimed Alison-Madueke stole “not lower than $2.5bn.”

He mentioned Nigeria wanted the cash to spice up its financial system.

Magu  mentioned it was “unlucky she has a era of looters supporting her.”

The EFCC chief added, “I used to be in London this year, we did an investigation along with the UK group, and wherever I am going I at all times call for the extradition of corrupt Nigerians to return (stolen) cash.

“This lady  (Alison-Madueke) has stolen a lot, not lower than $2.5bn, however sadly she has a era of looters who’re supporting her. This isn’t good.

“We’re in contact with the worldwide neighbourhood, she is underneath protecting custody, in any other case, we might have arrested her and produce  her to Nigeria.”

Magu mentioned corruption was surmountable, noting that in 2019, a complete of 1,218 convictions have been secured by the fee.

He mentioned, “We is not going to enable corruption to work right here in Nigeria as a result of it’s damaging and disastrous. We blocked several accounts.”
