A witness of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Orji Chukwuma, on Wednesday, tendered before a Federal High Court in Lagos the receipt of the
N40m house rent allegedly paid by a former Director-General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, Patrick Akpobolokemi, for a rented
apartment on Banana Island, Lagos.

The N40m, the witness said, was paid in three tranches of N12m, N14m and N14m, and covered Akpobolokemi’s rent for two years – for 2013 and 2014.

The witness, an EFCC investigator, also tendered before the court the receipt of a Toyota Landcruiser bulletproof jeep, which Akpobolokemi allegedly bought
from a car dealer, Vision Motors, for N38.5m.
