| The Daily Crucible | Sunday, July 31, 2022

The federal government has sought help from United States Government to extradite a Nigerian-born veteran journalist, Azuka Jebose, from the United States of America to answer questions in Nigeria in connection with cyberstalking of international lawyer and politician, Prince Ned Nwoko

The request is contained in a letter from the office of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister for Justice, Abubakar Malami and addressed to the US Ambassador to Nigeria.

The letter, dated June 27, 2022 and titled, 'Request for the Extradition of Azuka Jebose in a case of cyberstalking from the United States of America to Nigeria,” was signed by the Head of Control Authority Unit, (International Cooperation In Criminal Matters), Mr. Akutah Pius Ukeyima on behalf of the AGF and the federal government.

Mr. Ukeyima in the said letter, informed the ambassador that he had been directed by the AGF to “forward the attached request for extradition to your Excellency for onward transmission to the United States of America Department of Justice.”

It was alleged that Jebose, the US – based Nigerian journalist, has been publishing malicious and libellous stories against Nwoko on his facebook and Instagram pages since the past three years.

It claimed further that the malicious materials were "capable of tarnishing the image of the reputable politician, businessman, international lawyer and philanthropist.”

The extradition request seeks among other measures to compel Jebose to travel down to Nigeria to defend his accusations against Nwoko as he who alleged must prove by law.
Hon. Nwoko former member of House of Representatives between 1999- 2003 is the Delta North senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections.
