Why Ricky Tarfa dragged MTN, EFCC to court

22 February 2016, 13:11

Abuja - Embattled Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ricky Tarfa, has filed a fresh fundamental rights enforcement suit against MTN Nigeria Communications Limited, for the alleged violation of his right to privacy.

Joined as respondents are the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), its Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, Rashidatou Abdou and Femi Falana (SAN).

Tarfa claims that his right to privacy was violated when the call records/log on his phone with mobile number 08034600000 was allegedly accessed without his authority and made available to online media without any reasonable cause or a lawful court order.

The EFCC had on February 5 arrested the Tarfa and confiscated his two mobile phones and his Mercedez Benz SUV on the allegation that he hid two alleged suspects of the EFCC in his car to prevent their arrest.

He is also urging the court to hold that it was unlawful for the EFCC to access his bank details, client’s information, private and confidential information contained in his iPhone 6 with number 08034600000 and Samsung 6 phone with number 08077341616 without any reasonable cause or any court order.

He is urging the court to order the respondents to pay him N5bn for the alleged violation of his rights.
