Former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke to be extradited from UK – EFCC

Published

on

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed that the process for the extraditing former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke from the United Kingdom has begun.

Acting Spokesman of the commission, Tony Orilade said there have been calls from different quarters for the extradition of the former minister over several allegations of impropriety against her.

According to Orilade, EFCC’s Operations Department has made presentation to the Legal Department to commence the process, and that process has commenced. He, however, said that the action had to be processed through the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, explaining that it was not something the commission would commence and conclude on its own.

“It is ongoing. Within the next few weeks, the extent to which we have gone will be made known to the public. It is not a fresh case; it is not a fresh petition that is just being looked into; the whole process is a total package. This extradition is just an aspect of Diezani’s investigation and commencement of trial,” he said.

In 2017, a Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the final forfeiture of N7.6 billion alleged loot recovered from the former minister to the Federal Government.

Boy, 13, hanged himself after finding out his crush has a boyfriend

Published

on

A 13-year-old schoolboy took his life after finding out the girl he has a crush on had started dating somebody else.

 

Harry Storey, told friends on Whatsapp that he was feeling suicidal but they thought he was joking. Later that night on March 1 his father Andrew found his body at their home in Chilton, Oxfordshire.

 

Mr Storey said: “I could not comprehend what I was seeing.”

 

He carried out CPR and when his wife walked in he shouted for her to call emergency services. Harry was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital where he died three days later.

 

An inquest heard yesterday that it was unlikely that Harry had intended to kill himself.

 

The deceased’s father said: “We watched a programme where the female star had hanged herself but her friends rescued her. It made us wonder whether he had a sensationalised view of what might happen.”

 

Paying tribute to his son, Mr Storey said: “Harry was a charismatic, caring boy and sport was a huge part of his life, playing rugby, cricket and tennis. He would talk to anyone with ease and he had a natural ability to strike up a conversation, which I admired him for.

“He seemed to us to be just a normal teenager but he did have high expectations of himself. It came as a complete shock to me.”

Detective Sergeant Lou Heffernan-Glover said: “I think he lost consciousness unexpectedly. It could not have been predicted or prevented by his family.”

Coroner Darren Salter recorded a verdict of misadventure.

He said: “Harry did the action himself and had made comments about suicide. However teenagers do say things of that nature.

“There is an element of speculation but it seems to me that Harry did not intend it to be fatal. Therefore the conclusion is one of misadventure. Misadventure is similar to an accident, it is the deliberate undertaking of a risk that goes wrong, causing death.”
