There is no extradition agreement between Nigeria and Germany. However, both countries are member states of Interpol, so international extradition requests are not categorically excluded. Instead, each request is examined using general national guidelines. In Germany, the general extradition requirements are based on the IRG, the Law on International Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters.
The last extradition request from Nigeria to Germany was made in 2016. This was ultimately granted in court proceedings. On the other hand, Germany last made a request to Nigeria in 2007, which was also granted.
