Fraud:Captain Ezekiel Bala, Former NIMASA Boss, Gets Jail Terms


Captain Ezekiel Bala Agaba, a former Executive Director of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), has been sentenced to seven years in prison for laundering the sum of N1.5 billion by the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.

Justice Ibrahim Buba handed down the sentence on Wednesday, after convicting the former NIMASA ED.

In 2015, the EFCC had alleged that the convict while serving as the ED in charge of Maritime, Safety and Shipping, fraudulently conspired with the then-Director General, Patrick Akpobolokemi, to obtain the huge sum by false pretence from the Federal Government after which it was fraudulently converted.
