A pressure group operating as ‘Our Mumu Don Do’, headed by ace musician, Charly Boy, has announced that it would begin a fresh protest on Monday to push for the extradition of former Minister of Petroleum resources, Mrs Diezani Allison Maduekwe to Nigeria.

Maduekwe is being accused of diverting various huge sums of monies belonging to Nigerian people to her private pocket.

The group which intended to commence the protest had earlier organised the #ResumeorResign protests over the last medical vacation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Buhari had since returned to Nigeria even though he has been performing his official duties from home.

The group is insisting that Diezani Alison-Madueke, must come back to Nigeria for prosecution over the various corruption allegations made against her.

Alison-Madueke is in the United Kingdom where she is receiving treatment for cancer but is also being investigated for money laundering.

“Following recent mind-boggling allegations of corruption and wanton looting of public funds and the collective patrimony of Nigerian citizens by the former Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, we call on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to apply for her extradition from the United Kingdom, to face prosecution in Nigeria,” the group said in a statement.

“Furthermore, a Federal High Court has ordered Mrs. Alison-Madueke to permanently forfeit several luxurious properties in several highbrow 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 group said.

The group, in the statement signed by its co-conveners, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, and Deji Adeyanju, said it would hold the sit out from 9 to 10 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday in front of EFCC’s office in Abuja.
