Supreme Court Under Probe Over Alleged N2.2bn Fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, is set to examine the financial records of the Supreme Court of Nigeria from 2009 till June 27th, covering the administrations of six past Chief Justices of Nigeria, CJNs.

The chief justices who were at the helm of affairs for the period were Justice Aloysius Katsina-Alu, Justice Dahiru Musdapher, Justice Aloma  Muhktar, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, Justice Walter Onnoghen  and Justice Ibrahim  Muhammad.

The wide task was informed by a petition dated May 30th, authored by one Aliyu Mohammed purportedly on behalf of the concerned staff of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and addressed to the  Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa.

In the petition, the anti-graft agency was invited to unravel the jigsaw puzzle relating to the true ownership of a bank account domiciled at the United Bank for Africa from which a cumulative sum of 2.2 billion naira allegedly belonging to the Supreme Court of Nigeria, was purportedly diverted into.
