A Federal High Court on Thursday, April 17, ordered the arrest of former minister of petroleum, Dan Etete, former attorney general and minister of justice, Mohammed Adoke, and four others in relation to the Malabu Oil deal.
According to TVC, this is not the first time an arrest warrant has been issued.

Recall that Legit.ng had reported that Adoke reacted to a purported interview he was claimed to have had with a foreign journalist in which he reportedly admitted on tape that Malabu was a presidential scam.
The former AGF who claimed that the publication was targeted at destroying his relationship with ex president Goodluck Jonathan said there was no iota of truth in it.
"The publication which can at best be described as ‘fake news’ is nothing but an elaborate attempt at dressing up falsehood to pass as truth and substituting reality with fiction in order to misinform undiscerning members of the public, denigrate my person and cause disaffection and ill-will between me and my principal, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR who gave me the rare opportunity to serve this great country."
Meanwhile, a year ago, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja ruled in favour of Adoke, saying he cannot be held liable for acting out the directive of former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
The ruling was delivered on Friday, April 13, 2018, with the court insisting that Adoke was not liable in the resolution of the OPL 245 dispute with Malabu Oil & Gas Ltd.
