Dr. Bashir Jamoh

The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Bashir Jamoh has said that mischief makers are circulating what he called “expired lies” about him.

Jamoh in a statement signed by NIMASA Assistant Director, Public Relations, Mr. Edward Osagie said his attention has been drawn to a video in circulation with allegations by some faceless people leveled against his person bothering on an assumed N1.5 trillion and nine million dollars payment into his personal account.

Continuing, the statement which was obtained by Maritime Bits said: “We wish to state categorically that there is no iota of truth in this allegation as this social media post had been earlier circulated over three years ago in 2021”.

It is worthy of note that in 2021, when the allegations were then circulated, NIMASA Director General had personally requested the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate it. In the petition he personally signed and dated May 24th, 2021, Dr Jamoh complained that the viral story has impugned his integrity, character and family name.

This re-circulation of the 2021 video is the handiwork of mischief makers who are bent on misinforming unsuspecting members of the public for interest best known to them and their sponsors. Members of the public are hereby advised to disregard the content of this misleading social media post”, the statement added.
