According to the EFCC, the men were arrested on March 27th by officers of the Nigerian Navy for fishing in Nigerian territorial waters without getting authorized approval thereby violating Sections 1(1)(2) of the Seas Fishery Act Cap S4, 2004.

When the 2 count charge of conspiracy and stealing was read to the men, they pleaded not guilty and applied for bail through their counsel.
The presiding Judge, Justice Ibrahim Buba granted them bail in the sum of N10 million each with one surety in like sum each, who is to produce two recent passport photographs. They were remanded at the Ikoyi prisons pending when they meet their bail conditions.

  1. This is nonsense. Why cant they arrest those politicians mortgagging our contry and the future of our children. These political gangs should be dealt with first. Anyway, EFCC is now part of that corporate organisation

  2. Aw, this was a really nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a superb article… but what can I
    say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  3. Same EFCC just dropped corruption charges of N7.1billion against for Works Minister, Hassan Lawal and it is now procecuting poor Fishermen for fishing. Nigeria, we hail thee.

  4. Same EFCC just dropped corruption charges of N7.1billion against former Works Minister, Hassan Lawal and it is now prosecuting 5 poor Fishermen for fishing. Nigeria, we hail thee.

  5. This is madness of the highest order.Am not supporting stealing but those people in or outside power now that were charged for mismanagement of Government money and resources by the EFCC are still moving about the town.Some of them will get this national honours,but poor fishermen were detained.
    I SAY AND DECLARE IF THIS MEN WERE NOT RELEASED,BOTH THE JUDGE AND THE EFCC PERSONNEL,MAY THE FIRE FROM HEAVEN MIXED WITH BRIMSTONE STRIKE ALL OF YOU AND YOU SHALL NOT SEE THE END OF THIS MONTH.
    Where is our 9.3million dollars,what happened to the thieves?
