British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Andrew Pocock has called for the extradition of former Governor of Bayelsa State, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, to London.
Pocock said Alamieyeseigha, who was pardoned by former President Goodlcuk 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; PUNCH reports.
”The former governor skipped bail in the UK on a charge of money laundering and returned to Nigeria. So, he has an outstanding charge in the UK, which is there for him to answer.
”We have already discussed it and the Nigerian government knows our views. But we would like to see him return and answer the charge in the UK”,Pocock said.
