A federal High Court in Lagos yesterday remanded in prison custody, two Ghanaians and three others, over alleged theft of 250 metric tonnes of petroleum products.

The two suspected oil thieves from Ghana are John Kwane Amissah and Jonathan Kumah Tetteh.

The Nigerians involved are Shadrack Eneogwu, Ojo Olagoke Christopher, Atolagbe Hakeem and Daniel Noan Oluwatobi.


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) charged them before Justice Hadisa Rabiu-Shagari.

A vessel, MT Queen of Peace, and two firms, Macchalis International Limited and Ayoknok Ventures Limited, were also charged with them.

However, the fifth accused person, Shadrack Eneogwu was said to be at large.

In the charge, the EFCC alleged that all the accused persons had on November 9, 2017, conspired among themselves, and unlawfully dealt in 130 metric tonnes of Low Pour Fuel Oil (LPFO), and I20 Metric Tonnes of Automotive Gas Oil (AGO), without appropriate licence.
