Judicial Corruption: EFCC quizzes two judges

Two Federal High Court judges, Mohammed Yunusa and Hyeladzira Nganjiwa, were on Monday quizzed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The judges arrived at the Commission’s Lagos Office about 10:05 a.m. following an invitation letter the EFCC extended to them.

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.

The EFCC had on March 9, 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.

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

Subsequent investigation revealed that the two Judges allegedly received sums of money from the two senior lawyers severally.

Monday’s questioning occurs a week after seven judges were arrested by the State Security Service for alleged corruption. The seven judges are expected to be arraigned soon.
