In the short announcement, the EFCC listed other individuals and firms charged alongside the Messrs Omokore and Yakubu as Victor Briggs, Abiye Membere, David Mbanefo, Atlantic Energy Brass Development Limited and Atlantic Energy Drilling Concepts Limited.

Mr. Omokore, an ally of former President Goodluck Jonathan, previously had allegedly secured multi-billion dollar contracts in shady deals that violated due process.
