Alleged N600m Fraud: EFCC Arraigns Ex-Naval Chief, Others

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has arraigned a former Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin and two others: Rear Admiral Bala Mshelia (rtd) and Rear Admiral Shehu Ahmadu (rtd) before Justice A. S Umar of the FCT High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja on a 4-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy.
They were docked alongside Habour Bay International Limited
The EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren noted that the naval chiefs whilst in office allegedly bought a house worth N600 million from the account of Naval Engineering Services without the said purchase contract being captured in the budget.
It was also alleged that, the documentation for transfer of ownership of the property was done such that a private company owned by the family of the first defendant (Vice Admiral Jubrin) became the buyer.
Uwujaren noted that the offence is in contravention of Section 26 (1) (b) and punishable under Section 22 (4) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offence Act 2000.
The defendants pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to them.
