UK Investigators Trace N1.5 Trillion, $9 Million Looted Funds to NIMASA Boss, Bashir Jamoh’s Personal Accounts 

Investigators from the United Kingdom have uncovered another corruption scandal in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration involving Bashir Jamoh, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, where various sums, including N1.5 trillion and another $9,557,312.50, have been traced to his personal accounts.

Shockingly, the Fidelity account with N1, 505,890,450,000.67 has Hamza Ibrahim Jamoh with BVN 22151837650 and cell phone number 08034517410. While the BVN number revealed a different identity, the cell phone linked to the account is linked to the DG of NIMASA, Jamoh.

Further investigations revealed that the N1.5trillion was, after a few months, cleared from the account to avoid investigations into the lodgment of such a huge amount.

The investigation also exposed other infractions by the agency’s boss, which also included the award of contracts to companies which he has an interest in.
