EFCC Freezes Tompolo’s Bank Account

The wanted ex-militant has been on the run since February and was arraigned in absentia with former NIMASA Director-General Patrick Akpobolokemi on April 18, 2016 due to their involvement in a N47.7b fraud.
According to the anti-graft agency, the account held N3b. The assets were discovered while the EFCC was investigating fraud in the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
“The account has since been frozen in accordance with Section 34 (1) of the EFCC Act of 2004, which empowers the Commission to freeze any account suspected of being used for financial crimes,” an EFCC source told Punch Newspaper.
The wanted ex-militant has been on the run since February and was arraigned in absentia with former NIMASA Director-General Patrick Akpobolokemi on April 18, 2016 due to their involvement in a N47.7b fraud. The EFCC arraigned the duo before a Federal High Court in Lagos on 22 counts of fraud, conversion of money, and forgery.
The EFCC alleged that Tompolo and Mr. Akpobolokemi conspired to steal funds from the federal government sometime in 2014. Additionally, the duo has also been accused of forging a Certificate of Customary Rights of Occupancy of the former state of Bendel and allegedly issued the same certificate to NIMASA. They claimed it was legally issued by the Warri South Local Government Area in Delta State.
