Fraud case: Court orders arrest of NAMA MD, ​Pwajok months after appointment

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Mathew Pwajok, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA).

On Tuesday, Justice Babs Kuewumi of the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, issued the decision.

Pwajok, who was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari in January, is charged with contempt of court.

In July 2022, the judge issued a subpoena against Pwajok, ordering him to release some documents.

The files are needed in the ongoing trial of ex-NAMA MD, Ibrahim Abdulsalami and others for an alleged N2.8billion fraud.

The Economic and Financial Crimes and Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting the case.

Abdulsalam is facing trial alongside Nnamdi Udoh (at large), Adegorite Olumuyiwa, Segun Agbolade, Clara Aliche.

Others are Joy Ayodele Adegorite, Randville Investment Limited and Multeng Travels and Tours Limited.

The defendants allegedly conspired to induce NAMA to deliver N2.8billion to Delosa Limited, Air Sea Delivery Limited and Sea Schedule Systems Limited.

They claimed that the money represented the cost of clearing NAMA’s consignments.
