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 for an alleged N754.8 million fraud continued today, March 18, 2022, with the trial judge reserving ruling for May 6, 2022 on an application filed by the prosecution seeking to have its next witness based in the United States of America to testify through electronic means.


The defendants, who are alleged to have defrauded NIMASA, were initially charged alongside Governor Juan, Vincent Udoye, Ekene Nwakuche, Adegboyega Olopoenia and a company, Gama Marine Nigeria Ltd., before the charge was amended to involve only the two defendants.

At today’s sitting, the prosecuting counsel, Kufre Uduak, moved the motion of the prosecution seeking the witness, one Charles Aroawode Oboh, a Director in Aroward Nigeria Limited based in the United States of America, to give evidence through electronic means.
