Female NNPC MD, Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue's Cook Absconds With $6m In Cash & Jewelry

A cook who served Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, a Managing Director at NNPC in Abuja, is said to have absconded with cash and expensive jewelry worth $6million.

According to SR, the cook, identified as Gabel Segbedji, a national of Benin Republic, took off with the loot in a Toyota Camry car which also belonged to his boss, last Wednesday.

Although reportedly devastated by the development, Mrs. Nnamdi-Ogbue did not report the burglary to the police, in the hope of avoiding further attention, as she is already under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Mrs. Nnamdi-Ogbue was the MD 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.

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 big girl got the mountain of cash from kickbacks given by oil marketers.

The theft of the stash is likely to affect plans for her daughter's wedding scheduled for December.
