Charly Boy carries out threat, leads protests to EFCC office, demands Diezani repatriation

#OurMumuDonDo# protesters led by Charles Oputa, known as Charly Boy, on Monday staged a protest to demand for the repatriation of former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke.

The protesters who stormed the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Abuja, insisted that the former minister should be repatriated and tried in Nigeria.

He had last week promised to lead the protest, after he called off a somewhat similar protest calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to either return home from his sojourn in London, or resign his position as president.

There have being several allegations of corruption levelled against the former minister in Nigeria, the United Kingdom and America.

The minister, who served under the immediate past administration of President Goodluck Jonathan is also said to have conspired will her associates Kola Aluko and Jide Omokore, in alleged corruption cases running into billions of dollars.

Speaking on the protest, Deji Adeyanju, a co-convener of the group said, “The people saying we should not demand for
#BringBackDiezani are not only funny but are not conversant with her charges in the U.K.

“If we do not #BringBackDiezani to face real trial here, this woman would have gotten away with everything”, he said.

    This is a simple issue, Charley Boy should go to London and stage his protest there after all he has fans in London that will join the protest. Send Diezeni home will be the issue

      He’s a jobless idiot. Staging protest against someone who’s not in Nigeria is a silly act.

        He is only inciting the efcc to do their job by writing UK government to repatriate Alison home to face charges levelled against her

          Doesn’t it mean efcc don’t know their job again or how? I am suspecting many foul play in this Diezani issue, is it truly possible for her to have stolen such huge amount of money?

    Charly Boy is indeed a true Nigerian, if Diezani continues to stay abroad, her case will take more time, if she returns to Nigeri, the federal government will get hold of her better.

      Charly boy is working for money, he’s not a true Nigerian, he’s just a tool used by some sponsors.
