Justice It’s Mbaba not under EFCC’s Investigation


By Biola Lawal

Abuja:  The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,  EFCC, has declared that it is not investigating Honourable Justice Ita Mbaba of the Courtof Appeal in Kano.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by Wilson Uwujaren, the EFCC Spokesman, a copy of which was made available to Flowerbudnews.

The statement read:

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,  EFCC, has been drawn to some reports  in the Social Media,  alleging that its operatives,  in the Kano Zonal Command,  “invaded”  the residence  of the  Presiding Justice of the Court of  Appeal,  Kano Division,   Honourable Justice Ita Mbaba,  located on Sheik Yusuf Adam Game street,  off Race Cross Road, Nassarawa Government Reservation Area, Kano.

 While it is true that operatives of the Commission visited the property housing Hon. Justice Mbaba,   on a Property Verification Exercise,  owing to a subsisting matter involving the owner of the property,  there is no truth, linkage or  nexus with any investigation of the Honourable Justice of the Court of Appeal.

Available facts showed that  Hon. Justice Mbaba is not the owner of the property and could, therefore, not be the subject of any investigation by the Commission.

 We wish to restate that  Hon. Justice Ita Mbaba is not under  any investigation by the EFCC.  The Commission holds the Judiciary in optimum respect and will do nothing to embarrass any officer of the court. (Flowerbudnews)
