EFCC alleges Rickey Tarfa lied about his age

01 March 2016, 16:04

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday accused Rickey Tarfa of falsifying his age.

The anti-graft urged Justice Mohammed Idris of a Federal High Court in Lagos not to allow a further and better affidavit filed by the Senior Advocate of Nigeria in support of his N2.5bn suit against the EFCC.

An EFCC operative, Moses Awolusi, claimed in a counter-affidavit, that though Tarfa gave his age as 43 in the statement he made to the EFCC on the day of his arrest, findings showed that Tarfa’s real age is 54.

Tarfa’s lawyer, Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN), however urged Justice Idris to discountenance the EFCC’s claim, saying that anyone could misrepresent his age under the kind of treatment that the EFCC subjected Tarfa to on February 5.
