Justice Babs Kiewumi of the Federal High Court in Lagos yesterday granted bail to the Managing Director of Nigeria Airspace ManagementAgency (NAMA), Ibrahim Abdulsalam and six others, accused of stealing and conversion of N6,850,447,609.90 belonging to the agency.
The court admitted the accused persons to bail after the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) amended and re-arraigned them on a fresh 24- count charge.
In the amended charge, instead of the five persons and two companies that were originally on the earlier 21- count charge, two persons, Bola Akinribido and Sesebor Abiodun and three companies, Delosa Limited, Airsea Delivery Limited and Sea Schedule System Limited were added.
It will be recalled that Abdulsalam and three directors of the agency:Adegorite Olumuyiwa, Agbolade Segun, Clara Aliche, and two limited
liability companies; Randville Investment Limited, Multeng Travels and Tours Limited were arraigned before the court by the EFCC last week, Thursday.
They were all docked alongside the wife of one of the directors, Joy Ayodele Adegorite who is the managing director of Multeng Travels and Tours Limited on a 21- count charge of conspiracy, stealing and conversion.
