Akpobolokemi’s Alleged N754.8m Fraud Trial

The trial of Patrick Akpobolokemi, a former Director-General, Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), and Ezekiel Bala Agaba, before Justice R.I.B. Adebiyi of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos for an alleged N754.8 million fraud continued today, May 9, 2022, with the trial judge upholding the application by the EFCC to have its next witness who is based in the United States of America testify through electronic means.

The prosecution had, at the last sitting on March 18, 2022, approached the Court with the application.

The prosecuting counsel, Kufre Uduak, told the Court that the witness, one Charles Aroawode Oboh, a Director in Aroward Nigeria Limited, is based in the United States of America.

“The prosecution is seeking an order granting leave to call the witness based in the United States of America to testify through electronic means; and for such other order, as this Honourable Court may deem fit, to make in the circumstance,” he said.
