EFCC set to arraign five more judges

05 December 2016, 17:04

Abuja -  The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to arraign five more judges in connection with corruption, Saharareporters reports.

The commission has concluded investigation on the judges.

There were indications that cases being handled by the judges before their travails might be reassigned.

The details were being worked out by the Federal High Court and the National Industrial Court (NIC).

Also, it was learnt that the EFCC has seized the passport of a Commissioner of Police, Victor Onofiok who has been detained in connection with alleged N1.9billion fraud.

According to investigation, out of the six judges under probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), only Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia was arraigned last week.

The others awaiting conclusion of investigation and trial are Justices Mohammed Nasir Yunusa; Hyeladzira Ajiya Nganjiwa; Musa Haruna Kurya; Agbadu James Fishim; and Uwani Abba Aji.

The anti-graft agency last month punctured the argument of the Department of State Services that corruption was a threat to national security, the reason the latter gave to justify the raids it carried out on the homes of some judges across the country according to News24.

The stance of the anti-graft agency is a manifestation of the rivalry among security agencies, particularly between the DSS and the current leadership of the EFCC.
