Government of Dubai has finally repatriated the former Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister for Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke, back to Nigeria.

ROYAL NEWS reports that that the ex-Minister is on his way back home following Nigeria’s request.

Adoke is being accompanied by INTERPOL officers on Emirates Airlines.

His aircraft departed the Emirati commercial capital at about 11 am and expected to arrive Nigeria at 3:40pm.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had in 2017 filed charges against Shell Nigeria Exploration Production Company Limited and 10 others, including Adoke and Nigeria Agip Exploration Limited.

The anti-corruption commission in the case marked FCT/HC/CR/124/17, filed charges bordering on fraudulent allocation of the Oil Prospecting Licence 245 and other forms of offences involving the sum of about $1.2 billion, forgery of bank documents, bribery and corruption.

The alleged $1.2 billion scam involved the transfer of the OPL 245 purportedly from Malabu Oil and Gas Limited to Shell Nigeria Exploration Production Co. Limited and Nigeria Agip Exploration Limited.
