Bribery Scandal: 2 Fed High Court Judges In EFCC's Net
Justice Mohammed Nasir Yunusa and Hyeladzira Ajiya Nganjiwa, both judges at federal high courts today 17th October 2016, reported themselves to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), report according Daily Trust suggests

The Judges, according to report arrived at the Commission's Lagos Office about 10:05 am Monday morning following an invitation letter the EFCC extended to them.

Their invitation is said to be 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.

It would be recalled that the EFCC had on March 9, 2016 arraigned two senior lawyers Rickey Tarfa SAN and Joseph Nwobike SAN, before a Lagos High Court on allegations of bribery and offering gratification to a public official.

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.

It was learnt that subsequent investigation revealed that the two Judges allegedly received sums of money from the two senior lawyers severally.

The judges are presently being quizzed to by operatives of the commission
