The United Kingdom has said that it has not given up on its efforts to extradite former Bayelsa State governor, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, back to Britain to face trial.
The UK gov had already contacted the Federal Government of Nigeria requesting Mr. Alamieyeseigha’s extradition, and was awaiting a response to the request.
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Andrew Pocock, told the paper in an exclusive interview that the former governor, who recently got state pardon from his criminal conviction in Nigeria, still has an outstanding case of money laundering to answer to in the UK and that the UK government will not give up until Mr. Alamieyeseigha is brought to justice.
His recent state pardon by President Goodluck Jonathan and a sudden announcement that he has been extricated of all wrong doing via the state clemency, hit the UK authorities as a rude shock, London is planning to sanction Nigeria over the matter.
Alamieyeseigha has a case to answer in the Uk, he skipped bail in the UK on a charge of money laundering and returned to Nigeria. He has an outstanding charge in the UK, which is there for him to answer. (Uncle Jonna This your pardon moves for Alarmms na bad move o! You better hand over Alarmms back to Oyibo people to face the music like a man just the way ibori did o!) We are all aware GEJ is gingering Alamieyeseigha to hold grounds for him in the Niger Delta in 2015, as well Alamieyeseigha eyes are now fixed on the senate.
