Justice Danlami Senchi of a Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Jabi has granted the request of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for a warrant of arrest against former minister of petroleum, Dan Etete, and former minister of justice and attorney-general of the federation, Mohammed Adoke.

Also declared wanted were Raph Wetzels, Casula Roberto, Pujato Stefeno, and Burrato Sebastiano.

All the above-mentioned persons were meant to be arraigned before Justice Senchi on April 17, 2019, to face charges related to the Malabu Oil scandal but failed to show up.

In view of their persistent absence in court, the EFCC had through its counsel, Aliyu Yusuf, brought a motion ex parte praying the court for a warrant of their arrest, and an order for leave to execute the warrant outside of the jurisdiction of the court.

After a motion by Yusuf for their warrant of arrest, Justice Senchi granted the prayers of the EFCC and ruled that the Nigeria Police, INTERPOL and any other law enforcement agency should arrest them anywhere they are found, including outside the jurisdiction of the FCT High Court.

Meanwhile, the matter was adjourned to July 11, 2019 for further hearing.
