Nigeria’s plans to bring home its former oil minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, to face corruption charges is gathering pace.

A court in Nigeria’s capital on Tuesday (Dec. 4) issued a warrant of arrest, tasking the country’s anti-corruption and security agencies to detain Alison-Madueke within 72 hours. It means Nigeria will be requesting the former minister’s extradition from the United Kingdom where she has been under investigation for money laundering since 2015. However, with an election just months away, Nigerian authorities will be keen to have Alison-Madueke face justice in a Nigerian court sooner than later and now claim the British investigations are moving too slowly.
