The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is set to file fresh criminal charges against Government Ekpemupolo popularly known as Tompolo and a former Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, Patrick Akpobolokemi over an alleged scam in the acquisition of a property worth N11, 765, 308, 339.80 (eleven billion, seven hundred and sixty five million, three hundred and eight thousand, three hundred and thirty nine naira, eighty kobo).
This was contained in a statement JATUSKI Communication acquired on Wednesday.
In a crack operation also on Wednesday, Operatives of the EFCC apprehended one Engr. Aikahu Umene for offence bordering on personation, forgery and stealing.
It would be recalled that Tompolo had refused to honour an earlier invitation by the EFCC, describing charges against him as politically motivated.
