Gov. Godswill Akpabio In Trouble Over Aide, Nse Ntuen’s Arrest For Smuggling $82,000!

The state helmsman that gave party chieftains N1m each for lunch, Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom state is undergoing probe.

And this is connection with an offence perpetrated by one of his key loyalist.

His staunch aide and chairman of Essien Udim, Local Government area, Mr Nse Ntuen was arrested in the United States of America  on Friday August 16 2013 for smuggling $82,000.

The arrest was effected by the Maryland State Police on the premise that the suspect did not declare the money with the US custom officials – he only declared $5,000…  And an additional $77,000 was found in his bag on inspection.

He immediately arrested and detained.
The Governor’s loyalist reportedly claimed the money was for official purpose.

He claimed it was meant as donation at the Annual International Convention of the Akwa Ibom Indigenes in the US and Canada slated for Marriot Hotel in Washington, DC the next day, Saturday August 17 2013.

He was released after five hours of detention and series of questioning. The money was however confiscated by The Maryland State Police Department.

Insiders revealed though he was released, the case is not a closed affair.

investigation to determine whether it was a one off, or successful attempts in the past were made is on.

The scope of the probe is expanded to cover past travels of the Local council boss, his known associates, particularly within the government. And to establish who he was acting for.

According to an informant ‘ this is where Akpabio comes in’

Based on celebrated cases of State Governors like  Deprie Alamesieghab, Jonah Jang and the serving jail term James Ibori in the international community, and the suspect’s links to him- the incumbent Governor of Akwa Ibom state has been drafted into the scope of investigation.

The aim of the move is labelled to ‘eliminate or confirm him as a potential sponsor of the arrested money smuggler..and also determine if it is an elaborate scheme he has knowledge of, involved in or not’

The move to begin this process is reportedly being processed- with those that have constantly expressed displeasure at Governor Akpabio’s manner of administration and political liaisons at the vanguard.
