Justice Ita Mbaba Not Under Investigation– EFCC


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said that Court of Appeal Justice, Hon. Ita Mbaba is not being Investigated.

In a statement on Wednesday, the EFCC Head of Media & Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren said:
“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  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 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.
