BREAKING: Court sentences the former maritime director of money laundering of N136 million

Calistus Obi, a previous Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), has been indicted for intentionally changing over and washing N136 million implied for the partnership. Equity Mojisola Olatoregun, the directing judge, sitting at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Thursday, gave the judgment in a two-hour long running the show.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged Obi and his co-backstabbers in 2016 for the scheme, change, and illegal tax avoidance of the whole of N136 million. Obi was charged close by one Alu Dismas, a helper to Patrick Akpobolokemi, a previous Director-General of NIMASA, on an 8 check charge of intrigue and illegal tax avoidance.

Even though the court released any vindicated the litigants of intrigue for the disappointment of the investigator to wisely demonstrated connivance, the court, in any case, indicted the respondents for change and illegal tax avoidance.
