EFCC arrests five for supplying adulterated petroleum products to firm


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Port Harcourt Zonal Command, has arrested five suppliers of suspected illegally and poorly refined petroleum products to a multinational construction company in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

A statement by EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, noted that the suspects were arrested at the premises of the company around Rumuolumeni, Port Harcourt while off-loading the products.


The suspects are Kelvin Ibe, Anslem Onyelosi, Kelly Omamogho, Jude Tochi, and Kelvin Duru.

He said reports showed that the suspects had been supplying adulterated products to the company without being detected.

According to him, “surveillance by the EFCC led to the arrest. The suspects were arrested alongside four trucks with registration number MBA 340 XA; XB 867 NGK, GWK 66XA, and UMA 39 YW.”

Uwujaren said the suspects would be charged to court as soon as it concludes their investigation.
