Disgraced Former Attorney General, Mike Aondoakaa, Sues U.S. Government Over Visa Revocation

Disgraced former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Michael Aondoakaa, has sued the American government, seeking explanation for the revocation of his U.S. non-immigrant visa.

The U.S. government had revoked Mr Aondoakaa’s visa and those of members of his family soon after he left office due to his alleged link to corruption.
An unnamed U.S. diplomat, who spoke to Punch Newspapers at the time, confirmed that the former minister’s visa was revoked under Proclamation 7750 that empowers the U.S. authorities to bar anyone with links to corruption from entering the U.S.
However, further details about the revocation were not disclosed.
The former minister filed a case against the State Department after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request he filed was turned down.
He then approached a United States District Court asking it to compel the U.S. to release documents related to the revocation of his visa to him.
It is unclear whether the State Department eventually provided my Aondoakaa the details he sought.
