The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has arrested the lawmaker representing Delta-North Senatorial District, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, for an alleged fraud of N6bn.

It was alleged that Nwaoboshi awarded the contracts worth N3,483,144,000 to15 companies registered in the names of his relatives and proxies, some of which are not even registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission.
The companies are Benchmark Construction and Projects Limited; Milestone Allied Builders Limited; Edendoma Stars Intl; Isumabe U.K Global Ventures; Nelpat (Nigeria) Company; Edrihide Company; Antlers Construction and Allied Works Limited; and AGH-Rown Ventures.
Others are NOAN Integrated Services Limited; De-Towers Construction and Allied Services; Eastern Wrought Iron Limited; Franstine Nigeria Enterprises; Brant Technologies; Omozuabho Global Resources and Bugstruct Limited.
