Charly Oputa, known aka Charly Boy, has led #OurMumuDonDo protests 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.

Speaking on the protest, a co-convener of the group ,Deji Adeyanju 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. He said

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