Kola Aluko, Alleged Money Launderer for Governor Akpabio on the Run
The alleged custodian of the overseas assets of Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State has taken off. The guy named Kola Aluko, is on the run from the law over several controversial and fraudulent dealings in the petroleum industry.
The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has declared him wanted.
Aluko, resident in London, is a known face in Akwa Ibom state Government House, Uyo, and in the State Governor’s Lodge, Abuja, where he enjoys unimpeded access.
A young man of 44, he holds the financial interest of Governor Akpabio in their packaged company, Seven Energy, an oil exploration company in which he served a Deputy Chief Executive Officer.
He also holds Governor Akpabio’s investment in Vista Jet, where he also serves as a Director on account of the Governor’s shares.
Aluko, who lives on money made from Akpabio, at the expense of Akwa Ibom people whose N260billion allocation in 2013, could only boast of projects that are as old as 2009, owns the Galactia Star Yacht, a $50 – $100 million 65 meters long boat and the longest Heesen Custom super yacht ever built.
He, along with Jide Omokare, called Leader, are trying to scheme Governor Akpabio out of Seven Energy.
Omokare was once in the limelight when he tried to call a meeting between the Governor, former Secretary to Akwa Ibom State Government, Umana Umana, and former Commissioner for Finance, Bassey Albert Akpan, to settle their differences.
The former SSG is said to to be very close to Omokare who supplies all the foreign currencies used by Governor Akpabio in his mad benevolent dash-dash to politicians in Abuja. Governor Akpabio has also introduced them to his new SSG, Udom Emmanuel, who has entered an agreement with them to patronize their services in 2015 if he becomes Governor as Akpabio’s stooge.
Akwa Ibom people are at a loss to who introduced Akpabio to these 419 businessmen.
They pity him since all his stolen money is in the hands of these men.
Akpabio, they say, does not trust Akwa Ibom people; has not given any Akwa Ibom person, except his family members, contract of up to N5billion. Aluko and others, through their Seven Energy are handling a $33million gas plant project of the state government in Esit Eket.
