Sacked NIMASA boss nabbed over fraud

The immediate past Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Patrick Ziakede Akpobolokemi, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Premium Timesreports.
His arrest is coming two weeks after he was relieved of his position as Director General of NIMASA.

Akpobolokemi was reportedly arrested Thursday morning and was detained at the Lagos office of the EFCC in the Ikoyi area of the city where he was quizzed over some multibillion naira transactions approved by him especially during the dying days of the last administration.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on July 16 sacked Akpobolokemi and directed him to immediately hand over all government property in his possession and vacate office.
