The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission forcefully re-arrested the former Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Patrick Akpobolokemi, on Monday, over fresh allegations of fraud.
Akpobolokemi was arrested outside the court premises, shortly after his trial was adjourned by Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court, Lagos.
The former NIMASA DG’s case had just been adjourned till January 18, 2016 for trial and was about to enter his car outside the court when he was accosted by two EFCC operatives and two armed mobile policemen.
The EFCC officials requested for him to follow them but he blatantly refused, shouting ‘I am not going anywhere’.
Even the intervention of his lawyers couldn’t save him from being arrested, as the EFCC officials and two mobile policemen dragged him into their waiting bus.
