The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is set to file fresh charges against Tompolo and former Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) boss, Patrick Akpobolokemi.
The duo have been accused of allegedly defrauding the maritime agency of N11.8b.
Daily Trust reports that the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren said “Mieka Dive Institute, a sprawling expanse, purportedly acquired by NIMASA for the take-off of the Nigerian Maritime University, was approved for an outright purchase by the past administration in the sum of N13, 072,564,822.00 in which a sum of N11, 765, 308, 339.80 had been paid through NIMASA.”
Uwujaren also added that the rightful owners of the land, the Omadino Community of Delta State, are also making demands for payment.
Tompolo was summoned by the EFCC to clear the air on allegations of N34b fraud levelled against him and Akpobolokemi.
The ex-militant leader has refused to honour the invitation of the EFCC.
A group under the aegis of Trenchard Tank has called on President Buhari to stop victimising the ex-militant leader.
