EFCC grills Judges Nganjiwa, Yunusa for corruption

17 October 2016, 17:00

Lagos - Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are questioning Federal High Court judges, Mohammed Nasir Yunusa and Hyeladzira Ajiya Nganjiwa, on charges of bribery and money laundering.

An EFCC spokesperson disclosed the judges reported to the Lagos Office of EFCC on Monday following an invitation letter the agency extended to them.

“The judges are presently being attended to by operatives of the commission,” said the spokesperson.

Their invitation is sequel to the bribery and money laundering allegations the Commission discovered during investigations in an ongoing case in which two senior lawyers have already been arraigned in court.

EFCC had in March arraigned two senior lawyers, Rickey Tarfa and Joseph Nwobike, before a Lagos High Court on allegations of bribery and offering gratification to a public official.

Nwobike and Tarfa are facing criminal prosecution for allegedly offering inducement to Federal High Court judges to refrain them from exercising the duties of their office.

EFCC said subsequent investigations revealed Yunusa and Nganjiwa allegedly received sums of money from the two senior lawyers.
