EFCC alleges another SAN gave judge N750 000

03 March 2016, 16:27

Abuja - Another Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Joseph Nwobike, paid N750 000 into the account of Justice Mohammed Yunusa of the Federal High Court, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) alleged.

The allegation is contained in a counter-affidavit filed in opposition to a further and better affidavit filed by Rickey Tarfa (SAN).

Justice Mohammed Idris yesterday ruled that Tarfa could adduce new evidence through the further affidavit deposed to by a lawyer, Mohammed Awwal Yunusa.

In the further and better affidavit, the lawyer said the bank account, which EFCC said Tarfa used to bribe Justice Yunusa, belongs to him, and not to Justice Yunusa as EFCC alleged in its counter-affidavit to Tarfa’s suit.

The lawyer said Tarfa gave him N225 000 on January 7, 2014 to help finance his masters in Law degree.

But EFCC has alleged that Tarfa was not the only SAN to pay money to Justice Yunusa’s account.

An EFCC operative, Moses Awolusi, said there were new revelations about judges being allegedly induced through “a network of senior lawyers”.
