That former attorney-general of the federation, Bello Adoke flew into Abuja and was arrested at the airport is a stale news. What many do not know is that he was arrested by the Interpol
The international police organisation said it has no case against Mr Adoke and only carried out the arrest on behalf of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
“We have a red notice for him and we have instructions to arrest him upon arrival in Nigeria,” Umar Garba, head of Interpol Nigeria office, told Journalists. “We have carried out those instructions diligently and professionally.”
Mr Garba, a police commissioner, said Mr Adoke was arrested at the airport in Abuja by Interpol officers shortly after arriving on an Emirates flight from the United Arab Emirates and would be handed over to the EFCC.
“We have been in touch with the EFCC which is the Nigerian law enforcement organisation that is interested in Mr Adoke,” Mr Garba said. “We are going to hand him over immediately after debriefing him.”
Contrary to report that Adoke was extradited, sources say he was released and he bought his ticket to fly back to Nigeria from Dubai.
The EFCC is investigating Adoke regarding the Malabu oil deal.
