The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday arraigned the Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam at the Federal High Court in Lagos over alleged N2.8billion fraud.
He was charged alongside Nnamdi Udoh (still at large), Adegorite Olumuyiwa, Agbolade Segun, Clara Aliche, Joy Ayodele Adegorite, Randville Invesment Ltd and Multeng Travels and Tours Ltd before Justice Babs Kuewumi on 21-count charge.
The anti-graft agency had stormed NAMA headquarters on February 12, 2016 where they arrested the MD and the directors who have been in the custody until yesterday when they were dragged before the court.
EFCC said the defendants, with intent to defraud, conspired amongst themselves to induce NAMA to deliver the total sum of N2,847,523,975.00 to Delosa Ltd, Air Sea Delivery Ltd and Sea Schedules Systems Ltd in varying sums and at different dates under the pretence that the money represented the cost of clearing NAMA’s consignments.
The defendants pleaded not guilty to all the counts.
Justice Kuewumi adjourned to April 12 for commencement of trial while the defendants were remanded in Prison custody.
