The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested Jide Omokore, an ally of former president, Goodluck Jonathan and Chairman of Atlantic Energy Drilling Concepts Nigeria Limited.



It was gathered the arrest might not be unconnected with a series of multi-billion dollar petrol import and crude export deals linked to him.

Premium Times reports that Omokore, who is still cooling his heels in the EFCC custody, has made revealing statements.

The company, which was created less than a year earlier and had not produced a droplet of oil, was awarded controlling stakes in two lucrative oil blocks – OML 30 and 34 – for just over $50 million each.

The deal, which was signed by the immediate past minister of petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke, gave Atlantic Energy Limited a controlling 55 percent stake in the oil block.

The company was also indicted for lifting crude oil, but only remitting a fraction of its worth to the government.

The corruption of these magnitude should be transparent and the court process should be televise so that an average Nigerian will hear and understand what is going on. I believe there is more to these than what we are hearing because i think Dasuki mentioned many names but EFCC are only arresting those they want, i am surprised up till now no Emir, Oba, or Eze has been mentioned.

YOU BENEFITED FROM YOUR
USELESS god BOKARI THE
MOST TRAVELLED PRESIDENT
IN WORLD WITHOUT BRAIN..IF
IT WAS GOODLUCK YOUR KUNU MOUTH WILL BE RUNING
LIKE TOILET MONKEY FROM
THE ZOO see oppression Buhari's APC bribed a yoruba boy
studying at Universiti sains Islam
Malaysia with N7 million in
December 2014 for his facebook
propaganda posts. The same boy
was the one whose friend reported to the university management that
he was suffering from terminal
disease called HIV besides being
a scammer and fraudster. To my
chagrin, the person who made the
report got expelled and deported back to Nigeria
