EFCC Quizzes Two Lagos Judges Over ‘Bribery, Money Laundering’


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday quizzed two federal high court judges in Lagos State over allegations of money laundering and bribery.

According to the PUNCH, the two judges — Nasir Yunusa and Hyeladzira Ajiya Nganjiwa — are accused of bribery and money laundering.

It was learnt that two lawyers — Rickey Tarfa and Joseph Nwobike — both Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN), had already been arraigned in connection with the what the judges were accused of.

The judges arrived at the Lagos office of the EFCC at about 10:05am, after receiving an invitation letter from the commission.

“Their invitation is sequel to the bribery and money laundering allegations the commission discovered during investigation in an ongoing case in which two senior lawyers have already been arraigned in court.”

This development is sequel to EFCC’s confirmation last week that it was investigating eight judges.
