A Nigerian convicted fugitive, Florence Enwerem Onyegbu was extradited to the United States of America, USA, on Thursday, March 23, where she will answer to criminal charges bordering on violation of the U.S. Law involving the offer and payment of illegal remuneration in a health care matter. Her extradition was coordinated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, following a request by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, seeking assistance for her apprehension.

This was disclosed in a statement by EFCC spokesperson Wilson Uwujaren. According to the statement, investigations by the EFCC revealed that she had changed her name from Florence Onyegbu to Janet Boi in an attempt to remain hidden. Onyegbu, however, ran out of luck when operatives of the EFCC swooped on her at her residence in the Ojodu area of Lagos on February 21, 2022.

Upon her arrest, a national identity card with the name Janet Boi, as well as a Texas driver’s license with the name Florence Onyegbu, were found on her. The EFCC handed over Onyegbu to the FBI following an extradition order granted by Justice Z.B. Abubakar of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on December 2, 2022.
