The Senate on Thursday, gave the Managing Director, Nigerian Ports Authority, Hadiza Usman, four days to explain the whereabouts of over 282 vessels allegedly missing from the sea ports.

Sen. Hope Uzodinma, Chairman, Senate’s Joint Committee on Customs, Excise and Tariff and Marine Transport, gave the ultimatum in Abuja, at an investigative hearing on N30 trillion lost through leakages in Customs and other agencies.

Uzodinma, who expressed displeasure with the managing director for not honouring the committee’s two previous invitations, said the information on the vessels was imperative and must be available within four days.

He threatened that the senate may be compelled to pursue a financial crime case against Usman should he fail to heed the committee’s directive.
