“Through his companies, Amamgbo lifted crude oil and gas worth billions of dollars over a period of four years,” an official said.

Sources at the anti-graft agency said the investigation was continuing.

However, when contacted, the spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said: “I am told there is something like that but I don’t have the details.”
