Mohammed Bello Adoke, former attorney-general of the federation, has been arrested in Dubai by Interpol, The Cable reports.

The former minister is being held in United Arab Emirates following a confusion over a warrant of arrest that has already been vacated, the report says.

A federal capital territory (FCT) high court in Abuja had issued a warrant of arrest against Adoke on April 17, 2019 following a request by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the controversial OPL 245 deal executed by the federal government in 2011.

However, following an application by Adoke’s lawyers, the court, presided over by D. Z. Senchi, vacated the warrant on October 25, 2019, declaring it “null and void and of no effect whatsoever”.

It was reported that while the first order was sent to Interpol by the Nigerian police, the vacating order was not transmitted, thereby creating confusion for the multinational force.

Adoke, who was said to have arrived Dubai on Monday, November 11, for a scheduled medical check-up, was quizzed by the Interpol and then taken into custody following the mix-up.
