A company, Blueship Consult Ltd, has been dragged to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by one Comrade Prince Kpokpogri over an alleged contract scandal.

In the petition dated May 18, 2021, which was carried out by a law firm Cedarwall and Partners and signed by Ovie Justice Osefia Esq, the petitioner, Kpokpogri, alleged an act of financial fraud, cheating and breach of trust/failure to construct 10x7m infinity pool project after funds were given.

Kpokpogri specifically requested the commission to investigate and bring to justice Blueship Consult Ltd, Michael Chidinma Ifejia, Mrs Victoria Chinelo, Ifejia Folakemi Faphunda and others now at large for failing to carry out the construction of the said swimming pool project at Guzape Area in Abuja after collecting the sum of N16,000,000.00 from him.

According to the petitioner, after the negotiations and written agreement that took place in Lagos on the 13th Day of August 2020, the company agreed to execute and complete the project within six weeks immediately after the mobilization fees are paid into the company account.

But after the total sum had been paid in tranches into Blueship Consult Ltd’s Keystone bank account number 1007320832, the company failed to carry out the construction as agreed within the stipulated time.

The law firm further alleged in the petition that the company and its operators have become evasive and incommunicado, alleging that its conduct had portrayed suspicious acts of frauds, cheating and obtaining money under false pretence.

The petitioner has, therefore, urged the anti-graft agency to promptly look into the complaints bordering on fraudulent dealings.

Kpokpogri also sought that justice is served in respect of the petition and to also protect the public from the activities of the company.
