Court admits more evidence against Ex NAMA MD, Abdulsalam

Justice Babs Kuewumi of the Federal High Court, sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Wednesday, April 3, of 2019, admitted in evidence documents tendered by the prosecution against Ibrahim Abdulsalam, former Managing Director, Nigeria Airspace Agency, NAMA, and others over an alleged N2.8billion naira.

According to the statement made available by EFCC on Wednesday, Abdulsalam is facing trial alongside Nnamdi Udoh (still at large), Adegorite Olumuyiwa, Segun Agbolade, Clara Aliche, Joy Ayodele Adegorite, Randville Invesment Limited and Multeng Travels and Tours Limited for conspiring to induce NAMA to deliver the sum of N2.8billion to Deposit Limited, Air Sea Delivery Limited and Sea Schedule Systems Limited under the pretext that the money represented the cost of clearing NAMA’s consignments.

At on Wednesday sitting, Kayode Temitope  Olanrewaju, a Compliance Officer with Guaranty Trust Bank, (GTB) who was led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, told the court that, while as a staff in the Compliance Department of GTBank, his team received a letter of inquiry  from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), which upon its receipt, was forwarded to the Business Unit, Foreign Operations Department, which handles import duty document verification.

He added that the Business Unit confirmed to the Compliance Department that the import duty receipts were not issued by the bank.

“From more internal investigations, the said documents could not be confirmed from their records.

So, a response was sent back to the EFCC, stating that the purported documents said to have been issued by the bank could not be found in the records of the bank,” he said.

The prosecution counsel tendered the EFCC letter to the Manager, Guarantee Trust Bank , dated March 15, 2016 and Guarantee Trust Bank’s response addressed to the Head of Operations, EFCC, dated 23 March 2016, which the judge admitted and marked as “exhibits C1 and C 2” respectively.
