Ghen Ghen! EFCC lists 1st batch of alleged fuel subsidy fraudsters to be prosecuted

EFCC is now ready to prosecute fuel subsidy fraudsters and they've released the names of the first batch of suspects to be prosecuted in court. There are seven companies and 12 individuals...and they are:

The companies: Nasaman Oil Services, Eternal Oil and Gas Plc, Ontario Oil & Gas Plc, Nadabo Energy Limited, Pacific Silver Line Limited, Axenergy Limited, and Fago Petroleum and Gas Limited.

The individuals: Mamman Nasir Ali, Christian Taylor, Mahmud Tukur, Ochonogor Alex, Walter Wagbatsoma, Adaoha Ugo-Ngadi, Fakuade Babafemi Ebenezer, Ezekiel Olaleye Ejidele, Abubakar Ali Peters, Jude Agube Abalaka, Abdulahi Alao and Oluwaseun Ogunbanbo.


Ezekiel Olaleye Ejidele is director of renowned accounting firm, Akintola Williams Delloite, while Fakuade Babafemi Ebenezer is a staff of the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulating Agency (PPPRA).

Nasaman Oil Services, Mamman Nasir and Christian Taylor are to face charges bordering on obtaining N4,460,130,797.94 from the Federal Government of Nigeria under false pretence. The sum is alleged to have been fraudulently obtained as subsidy payments from the Petroleum Support Fund for the purported importation of 30.5m litres of Premium Motor Spirit from SEATAC Petroleum Limited of British Virgin Islands.

In the same vein, the anti-corruption agency will equally prosecute Abdulahi Alao and Axenergy Limited for allegedly obtaining the sum of N2,640,141,707.75, being payments received from the Petroleum Support Fund for the purported importation of 33.3million litres of Premium Motor Spirit.

Others include Mahmud Tukur, Ochonogor Alex, Abdulahi Alao and Eternal Oil And Gas Plc, who will be docked for fraudulently obtaining the sum of N1,899,238,946.02 from the Petroleum support Fund for a purported importation of 80.3million litres of Premium Motor Spirit.

Also, Nadabo Energy Limited, Abubakar Ali Peters, Jude Agube Abalaka and Pacific Silver Line Limited are to be prosecuted for allegedly obtaining the sum of N1,464,961,978.24, being payments fraudulently received from the Petroleum Support Fund for a purported importation of 19.4million litres of Premium Motor Spirit.

Walter Wagbatsoma, Adaoha Ugo-Ngadi, Fakuade Babafemi Ebenezer, Ezekiel Olaleye Ejidele and Ontario Oil & Gas Nigeria Limited will be arraigned for fraudulently obtaining the sum of N1,959,377,542.63 from the Petroleum Support Fund for a purported importation of 39.2million litres of Premium Motor Spirit.

Lastly, Fago Petroleum and Gas Limited and Oluwaseun Ogunbanbo are to be docked for fraudulently obtaining the sum of N979,653,110.20 from the Petroleum Support Fund for a purported importation of 33, 627, 84 litres of Premium Motor Spirit.

According to EFCC, the suspects are among a larger list of more than 140 individuals and organisations involved in ongoing investigations into the subsidy payments, and so more suspects will be arraigned periodically as the investigation progresses.

The Commission described the investigation as massive and extensive, and reassured Nigerians that it would do all within its powers to apprehend and punish all the people defrauded the country under the guise of subsidy for imported fuel.

Before now, there had been widespread belief that those involved could evade justice, as a number of high-profile national figures are thought to have spearheaded the scam. (TheWill Nigeria)

This is a big test for the EFCC and the judiciary. After Nigerians took to the streets in january and the country was shut down for a whole week, let's see where all these struggles will lead to in uncoverving and unsparingly punishing these guys. But I advice that the new Chief Justice should seriously warn the judges never never to compromise. And the Efcc to punish severly any of its worker caught trying to sheild anyone. Let's see.

GG said...

This is a very stupid one sided move. They should arrest all the people in the petroleum ministry who approved the payments. They obviously knew that these people didn't deliver any goods, they just filed the fake papers and shared the monies.

Even a small child knows that this is what works in Nigeria. When my dad was doing a project with the Ministry of Housing, the man in charge requested for 20% of his expected payment as their own share upfront before processing his invoice. Thank God the terrible man was moved and was replaced by a new guy who didn't know how things were going down. So he approved the money before they initiated him.

Anonymous said...

Arisekola Alao good family indeed ........ i laugh ooo, are you for real. The man has been stealing Nigerian money since the 80s. Who can forget 1998 when UI student ambushed him and burnt 6 of his Mercedes Benz on campus because of his excessive looting with Abacha. The only plus side is that the man is a giver and actually helps the poor alot.

From this list we can see the son is following his footstep in looting from Nigeria.

Anonymous said...

well for those that have ears, let them hear, for those that has eyes they should read and for those that can read english this is for them. If you do not understand a topic dont comment. Going by the list, there is a south south rep, igbo rep, yoruba rep and hausa rep. the south south may not be in the for front of this category but the brewing oil theft and hijacking of vessel is their birth right. when we get to that chapter they will top the list. I understand they will charge them in phases. some of the big men are enjoying their last days with their families as they may die in detention from BP and associated illness...... Linda Good job....

Anonymous said...

it is not an exhaustive list,my dear. According to the story,the investigarion is on going and as more valid facts and evidences are compiled against the over 150 names, prosecutions would commence.

It makes a lot of sense for them to start with the so called small fries.their case can quickly be investigated unlike the 'big' ones who must have taken the'time to make a complex presentation to relevant agencies.

That is my take. With time they will exhaust the list and move to the more crwdible AIg list.

These names here are a bunch of small boys with money. They released this list to cover up the bigger OLE's. Nobody's gonna tk this bullshit list serious. Rubbish. If big thieves like Cecilia Ibru could get away with all her looting, then am afraid this list is just a yawn

This is utter rubbish, what is releasing a list going to do. The names that are not there are probably the ones who are taking the most from the country. And this so called list is just another way of EFCC deceiving us that they are actually working when in actual fact they are the ones taking the most from us

Anonymous said...

This is nonsense. The same government that have been collecting millions of naira from these oil company as tax are now the same ones that want to convict them. If they were serious, while collecting their taxes they would have noticed that the money was gotten from fraudulent means. These people are not serious

Anonymous said...

Ignorant Nigerians. Don't be fooled this one is just to cover up for what is more. They are probably even withholding the main fraudsters in the oil industry so that they can benefit from the tax collected from them. Nigeria is in for it

Anonymous said...

See the small names they're calling. Half of them aren't even known by the public. Let them convict the big ones like Zenon, Total, Oando, etc. So we know that they are actually serious

The truth must be told. This is a test case for the EFCC to carry on dilligent prosecution. For instance, Adaoha Ugo-Ngadi is passionate about stealing. Let EFCC check her record at Afribank. These are rogues indeed.

U are obviously a player in d oil industry who didn't get crude oil contracts, cos u are talking about people whose figures are minute compared to that of what some major marketers and individuals are involved with. If u had mentioned d real beneficiaries of d subsidy I would have thought your comment was from a neutral perspective, but u obviously have an axe to grind with these 2 companies. Let d real culprits be paraded, not what we've seen in d last 2 days.
