EFCC arraigns NAMA boss, others over N2.8bn fraud
The Managing Director, Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), Mr
Ibrahim Abdulsalam on Thursday, appeared before a Federal High Court in
Lagos, over alleged N2.8 billion fraud.
He is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
(EFCC) on a 21- count charge.
Abdusalam is charged alongside Nnamdi Udoh (still at large), Adegorite

Invesment Ltd and Multeng Travels and Tours Ltd.
They were arraigned before Justice Babs Kuewumi.
All accused persons pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Justice Kuewumi ordered for their remand and fixed April 12 for hearing of
their bail application.
In the charge, the EFCC alleged that on Aug. 19, 2013, the accused
conspired to induce NAMA to deliver the sum of N2.8 billion to Delosa Ltd,
Air Sea Delivery Ltd and Sea Schedules Systems Ltd.
It was alleged that the delivery was under the pretence that the money
represented the cost of clearing NAMA's consignments.
It was also alleged that between Jan. 2 and Dec. 17, 2013, the defendants
allegedly converted N191 million belonging to NAMA to themselves.
They were said to have also converted N728 million between 2013 and 2015,
as well as other sums.
The alleged offences contravened the provisions of Sections 8 (a) of the
Advance Fee Fraud and other Fraud Related Offences Act, 2006, punishable
