Court Orders Arrest Of ExxonMobil MD For Alleged fraud

A Federal High Court, Abuja has given approval for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,  to arrest Managing Director, ExxonMobil Nigeria, Richard Laing.

This was disclosed by EFCC via its Twitter handle on Wednesday. The anti-graft agency stated that Justice Okon Abang granted its application for a Bench Warrant to arrest Laing.

It stated, “The Commission is investigating alleged procurement fraud in the Major Integrity Pipelines Project involving Mobile Producing Nigeria as the contracting company, Suffolk Petroleum Services Limited as the main contractor, Saipem Contracting Nigeria, Global Offshore Limited and Van Ord as sub-contractor to SPSL.

At issue, is the fraudulent creation of Change Orders worth over $213million USD.”

The anti-graft agency had approached the Court for a Warrant after three invitations to Mr. Liang were rebuffed.
