How N67.45m was transfer from NIMASA in 9 days

An account officer with the Access Bank Plc, Oliver Ewerem has narrated how funds were transferred to Gama Marine Nigeria Limited and one Vincent Udoye from a NIMASA account within nine days to the tune of N67.45m, reports ITRealms.

Noteworthy is that a former Director-General of the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Patrick  Ziadeke Akpobolokemi and six others continued before Justice R.I.B Adebiyi of a Lagos State High Court sitting in Igbosere, 

Ewerem made this disclosure while being led in evidence by prosecuting counsel Idris Abdullahi Mohammed, and gave a breakdown of some of the transactions that occurred between 2nd - 11th February, 2015.

“On 2nd February, 2015, there was a credit of N28,000,000 from the account of Committee of Voluntary International Maritime Organization Member State Audit Scheme, (VIMSAS). The same day, another credit of N39, 450,000 entered into account of Gama Marine.

“On 10th February, 2015, there were withdrawals from Gama Marine account in favour of one Vincent Udoye, N10 Million in three tranches which is N30 million was made. Another withdrawal by same Vincent Udoye in three tranches of N10, 000,000 which is N30 million occurred again in the same account.

"Also, on 10 February, 2015, a credit of N10, 000,000 in three tranches was paid  into Vincent Udoye’s account. On 11 February 2015, another credit of N10,000,000 million in three other tranches were again paid into the account of Vincent Udoye, altogether being seven transactions and amounting to N67,450,000."

ITRealms recalls that Akpobolokemi is standing trial alongside six others on a 13-count charge bordering on conspiracy, stealing and fraudulent conversion of funds to the tune of N687, 294,680 (Six Hundred and Eighty Seven Million, Two Hundred and Ninety Four Thousand, Six Hundred and Eighty Naira).
