The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has refuted a story being circulated in social media that its operatives have invaded the residence of the Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Kano Division, Justice Ita Mbaba.
ALL IN ONE reports that EFCC have also denied that the honourable justice was under investigation.
A press release signed by the Head, Media and Publicity of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren however admitted that it “visited” a property in Kano, the home of the Presiding Justice.
The EFCC says that “While it is true that commission visited the property located on Sheik Yusuf Adam Game street, off Race Cross Road, Nassarawa Government Reservation Area, Kano, the commission was there in respect of a subsisting matter involving the owner of the property and there is no truth, linkage or nexus with any investigation of the Honourable Justice of the Court of Appeal as available facts showed that Hon. Justice Mbaba is not the owner of the property.”
The Commission restated that it holds the Judiciary in optimum respect and will do nothing to embarrass any officer of the court.
