NDDC official to spend seven years in prison for contract fraud


Justice A. T. Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, on Friday, sentenced one Tarila Ebizimor to seven years imprisonment for obtaining money under false pretence to the tune of N4million.

The convict, a supervisor in the Security Department of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, was prosecuted by the Port Harcourt Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on a four-count charge.

Ebizimor’s journey to prison began sometime in August, 2013, when he paraded himself as personal assistant of the managing director of the NDDC and obtained the sum of N4million from the petitioner on the pretext that he will help facilitate the award of road construction contract to him.

However, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, has described the NDDC as a cesspool of corruption.

Akpabio, a former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, stated this during a courtesy call on Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River. Dailypost
