0

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, today, 17 August, 2018 took over a vessel and eight (8) crew members from NNS PATHFINDER, Naval Base, Rumuolumeni, Rivers State.

The vessel, MT WATER GATE 1, was arrested for suspected illegal bunkering activities by the team on April 11, 2018 while on patrol at Taraba Jetty.

The vessel was allegedly laden with estimated 200,000 litres of illegal refined AGO and 8 crew members. The crew members include: Adegboye Musbau (Captain), Olayiwola Shamsideen, Issa Taoreed, Yekinni Ramon, Adetokumbo Adeyinka, Ogungbenro Abraham, Ekundayo Saiki and Adegbayi Olalekan.

According to the Commanding Handing Over Officer, Commander I.F.Okoloagu, the product became questionable as the Captain, Musbau, refused to disclose the source of the product, hence the arrest and handing over to the EFCC.

Principal Detective Superintendent Gidado Musa while taking over the suspects and vessel, assured that the Commission will carry out thorough and diligent investigation to ensure that justice is served.
