A top EFCC source told THENIGERIALAWYER that sequel to the invitation letter the EFCC extended to some Judges, Honourable Justice Musa Haruna Kurya of the Federal High Court reported to the commission’s Lagos Office today at about 10:00am in order to react to some findings of the commission in an ongoing investigation.
The source added that Justice Kurya, accompanied by his lawyer was immediately attended to by the operatives of the commission on arrival.
However, the source said: ” another Federal High Court judge, Honourable Justice Rita Ofilli Ajumogobia, that was also supposed to be at the Commission’s office on a similar invitation dishonoured the call and refused to show up at all.”
It would be recalled that two Federal High Court judges, Mohammed Nasir Yunusa and Nganjiwa Hyledzira reported to Lagos office of the commission yesterday morning and their statements were obtained.
