The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) says the NIMASA-Barugu boat which sank on Saturday was subject of litigation under the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Assistant Director, Public Relations, NIMASA, Mr Edward Osagie, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos.
Osagie said that the incident was an unfortunate development but pointed out that the vessel under reference was one of Global West boats that was in service with the Agency years ago.
He pointed out that NIMASA remained committed to her statutory responsibility of administering safety and regulating the industry within the ambit of every lawful framework.
