Agency freezes accounts of Tompolo, 3 others

How many of these PDP elements know that just one individual benefitted from a single NIMASA transaction to the tune of N13bn, not to talk of about $57m he was said to have benefitted from controversial contract deals?

Mr. Government Ekpompolo.

In a bid to frustrate efforts by corrupt Nigerians to transfer their their stolen loot, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has frozen the accounts of some Nigerians suspected of looting funds.

According to Miss Petite blog, the anti-graft agency, secretly froze the accounts of:

Global West Vessels Limited purportedly owned by Mr. Government Ekpompolo, aka Tompolo.

Mr. Kingsley Kuku, the former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme.

Mr. Kime Engozi.

Miss Petite blog reports that a source in the Presidency said “This is not a matter of lobby or any politics that should be shoved aside; what is at stake is the nation’s security and nothing more. When the PDP says the current anti-corruption drive is selective, we continue to laugh at them because they do not seem to know what is at stake at all. If only they know, all the noise they have been making won’t be made at all."

The source also said  “How many of these PDP elements know that just one individual benefitted from a single NIMASA transaction to the tune of N13bn, not to talk of about $57m he was said to have benefitted from controversial contract deals?"

“Are these the things they ask us to sweep under the carpet? Certainly, we cannot because apart from the angle of the impunity and financial recklessness, does it make any sense if any responsible government allows such individuals, who had threatened war in the event that Jonathan did not win to have such huge sums in bank vaults? Such accounts must be flagged, of course,” the source said.
