The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has explained the presence of its operatives at the residence of Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Kano Division, Hon. Justice Ita Mbaba.
The anti-graft agency stated that its operatives visited the property housing Justice Mbaba on a property verification exercise.
The commission said there was a subsisting matter involving the owner of the property.
It denied that the Justice is under investigation and that its operatives didn’t invade the residence.
“The attention of the 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,” the commission’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement on Wednesday.
