London, Dec. 19, 2019 (AltAfrica)-Interpol has handed over wanted Nigerian former Attorney General of the federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke to the country’s anti graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC
The ex-AGF left Dubai on Thursday accompanied by INTERPOL officers on Emirates Airlines Flight 785.
The EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu, and Dubai authorities have held a series of meetings in respect of the former Attorney General.
The aircraft departed the Emirati commercial capital at about 11 am Dubai time (8 am Nigerian time) and touched down at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja at 3:45 pm.
Officers of the EFCC were on ground at the airport to arrest him on arrival
The EFCC said the ex-AGF will surely have his days in court.
Adoke, who had been on self-exile since the end of his tenure in 2015, was arrested in November by Interpol in Dubai over some pending charges in connection with the Malabu Oil deal in Nigeria.
He boarded a flight to Nigeria shortly after he was released from the Interpol custody in Dubai.
