Reps accuse AGF, EFCC of manipulating judiciary

The House of Representatives on Thursday accused the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of alleged “manipulation” of judiciary by reopening the corruption case against the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar.

The House noted that Malami and the EFCC had earlier cleared Umar of any wrongdoing in the alleged corruption act involving about N1.8bn.

However, the House said the AGF and the EFCC had made a U-turn recently by filing two corruption charges against Umar before the Federal Capital Territory High Court.

 

Umar presides over several high-profile corruption cases at the CCT, including the celebrated case involving the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and some top judicial officers.
