According to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Justice Ita Mbaba, who presided over the Court of Appeal’s Kano Division, was not the subject of any inquiries.
The EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, revealed this in a statement on Wednesday.
The commission denied some media claims that the judge was being investigated, claiming that EFCC agents had only gone to the judge’s home to check on his property.
The presiding Justice Ita Mbaba’s residence is located on Sheik Yusuf Adam Game street, off Race Cross Road, in the Nasarawa Government Reservation Area of Kano, and the EFCC’s attention has been drawn to reports on social media that claim that its operatives in the Kano Zonal Command “invaded” the residence.
There is no truth, connection, or nexus with any investigation into the Honorable Justice of the Court of Appeal, even though it is true that commission personnel visited the home of Hon. Justice Mbaba as part of a property verification exercise because of an ongoing dispute involving the owner of the property.
The information available indicates that Hon. Justice Mbaba is not the property’s owner and cannot, therefore, be the focus of any Commission investigations. Added he
The commission would not act in a way that would put any court officer in the public eye, the spokesman continued.
He continued, “We wish to reiterate that Hon. Justice Mbaba is not the subject of any EFCC investigations. The Commission has the utmost respect for the judiciary and will not act in a way that would put any court personnel in the public eye.
