Valentine Ashi, a judge of the federal capital territory high court, has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Department of State Services (DSS) and other security agencies to arrest Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum resources,within 72 hours.

The order was made, following an ex parte motion made before the court by Msuur Denga, counsel to the EFCC.

Denga prayed for an order of the court to issue a warrant of arrest against Madueke, to enable the commission apprehend and arraign her for alleged financial crimes in Nigeria.
