The embattled former Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Calistus Obi, sentenced to seven years imprisonment for N136 million fraud has revealed that he used the money to build a hotel in Asaba.
This is as a Federal High Court in Lagos on Wednesday declared after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) prosecuted Obi, alongside one Alu Dismas, a former personal assistant to former DG of NIMASA, Patrick Akpobolokemi, and two firms on an 8-count charge of converting N331 million belonging to the agency for personal use.
“The hotel is located somewhere in Asaba, Delta State. I can’t recollect the address now,” he had told the court.
