SHOULD ALAMIEYESIGHA BE EXTRADITED?
The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee on
Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, says the United Kingdom has every legal right to demand for the extradition of the former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye
Alamieyeseigha, to London.
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Andrew Pocock, had said Alamieyeseigha, who was pardoned by former President Goodluck Jonathan, has an
outstanding case of money laundering to answer in the UK and that the UK government will not give up until Alamieyeseigha is brought to justice.
However, former President Jonathan’s Senior Special
Assistant on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, had said
there was no need for Nigeria to send
Alamieyeseigha to the UK since he had been
punished and pardoned by the President.
Okupe argued that the offence was committed
against the people of Nigeria and the UK had no
business with Alamieyeseigha....
In light of recent arrests based on corruption
allegations, should this be given a go? What do you
