Popular entertainer, Charles Oputa, a.k.a Charly Boy, has declared his resoluton to stage a protest over extradiction from the United Kindom to Nigeria, Diezani Alison-Madueke, the former minister of petroleum.
This came after the #OurMumuDonDo protest he staged in Abuja along with other protests, where they were later attacked by hoodlums at the Wuse Market before the protest was suspended.
Charly Boy and his group had demanded in that protest that President Muhammadu Buhari, who had spent over 100 days on medical trip in London must return and resume his duty as president or resign.
But not minding the attack and an earlier assult by the police during that protest, where he collapsed when the Police teargassed him and his colleagues, Charly Boy on Thursday announced his new protest action.
According to the entertainer, he has resolved to lead a protest to the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja to call for the extradition of Diezani.
He stated this in a statement signed by him and Deji Adeyanju on Thursday.
There have several allegations of corruption levelled against Diezani who served under the immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan. Already, some supposed properties owned by her have been seized by the government.
The statement for the protest against Diezani read in part, “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, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, we call on the Economic & Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apply for her extradition from the United Kingdom to face prosecution in Nigeria,” Charly Boy said in the statement.
“Furthermore, a federal high court has ordered Mrs Alison-Madueke to permanently forfeit several luxurious properties in several high brow areas across the country to the federal government.
“It is therefore unimaginable that the federal government is not pushing for Mrs Alison-Madueke’s extradition to face punishment for her alleged crimes.
“In this light, we will be holding a two-day sit out in front of the EFCC headquarters to demand that the federal government applies for her extradition and prosecution in Nigeria”, the stated.
