A cook who served Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, a Managing Director at the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Abuja, has absconded with cash and pieces of jewelry worth $6million in all.
Mrs. Nnamdi Ogbue was the Managing Director of the cash-spinning Petroleum Products and Marketing Company (PPMC) before she was moved to Products Retail by then GMD of NNPC, Ibe Kachikwu, in 2015.
A report by Sahara Reporters informed that the man, identified as Gabel Segbedji, a national of Benin Republic, took off with the loot in a Toyota Camry car belonging to his boss, last Wednesday and Mrs. Nnamdi-Ogbue, obviously devastated did not report the burglary to the police, in a bid to avoid further attention, as she is already under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Segbedji is said to have been recommended for employment to Mrs. Nnamdi-Ogbue by a close friend of hers, Toke Benson. A source said the NNPC chief obtained the mountain of cash from kickbacks given by oil marketers
The theft of the stash is likely to affect plans for the wedding of her daughter scheduled for later this month in London.
