The Lagos State High Court has condemned the previous Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Executive Director (ED), Captain Ezekiel Bala Agaba, to seven years detainment for siphoning 1.5 billion Naira.


Agaba was summoned in December 2015 nearby a previous Director-General of NIMASA, Patrick Akpolobokemi, and two others for utilizing two firms to guide about N2.6bn implied for the usage of International Ship and Port Security code at the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency(NIMASA).

Justice Ibrahim Buba, who passed on the decision of the court held that the Economic Financial Crimes Commission has demonstrated the charges against Agaba past sensible questions. That is to say that the commission had discharged the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt in any criminal trial which suffices for a conviction of the accused.

As per the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the ISPS (International Ship and Port Facility Security Code) is to empower the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) to do security minds vessels going into the nation. 

Be that as it may, the Court of Appeal has since released Akpobolokemi while the EFCC (Economic Financial Crimes Commission) pulled back charges against two different litigants, leaving just Agaba the former Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Chief.
