    How Ex-NIMASA Boss Bought Banana Island House, Armoured Car

    A Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday heard how a former Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Patrick Akpobolokemi, acquired a bulletproof car for his personal use.

    An Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) witness, Orji Chukwuma, made this known during his testimony on the matter.

    Akpobolokemi, who is standing trial on a five-count charge of allegedly defrauding NIMASA of N2.6 billion between March and June 2014, recently denied sponsoring militant activities.

    He was arraigned alongside, Ezekiel Agaba, Ekene Nwakuche, Governor Juan, Blockz and Stonz Ltd. and Al-Kenzo Logistics Ltd. before Justice Ibrahim Buba on Dec. 4, 2015, and they all pleaded not guilty.

    At the resumed hearing, Chukwuma tendered documents how he acquired the car and also paid for his rented apartment situated in Ondo Street, Banana Island, Lagos.

    Led in evidence by EFCC lawyer, Mr Rotimi Oyedepo, the witness said “the first accused (Akpobolokemi) brought a document to us in relation to how he paid for his rented apartment on Ondo Street, Banana Island, Lagos.

    Chukwuma also attached a document from an estate surveyor on payments of his house rent.

    He further told the court that Akpobolokemi also submitted to the commission a receipt for the purchase of a bulletproofed car.

    Consequently, EFCC lawyer tendered the documents and urged the court to mark them as exhibits.
