The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has debunked reports that the residence of the Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Kano Division, Justice Ita Mbaba, was invaded by its officials.

The anti-graft agency, in a statement on Wednesday by its spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said contrary to reports, EFCC officials only visited Mbaba’s residence located on Sheik Yusuf Adam Game street, off Race Cross Road, Nassarawa Government Reservation Area, Kano, for property verification.

He added that despite the agency officials’ visit to Mbaba’s residence, the Appeal court justice was not under investigation.

The statement read “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to some reports in 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.”

Metro News Happening In Nigeria Today

The Federal Operations Unit, Zone ‘A’, of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), with headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos, said that despite being shot at severally by suspected smugglers during an all-night operation, operatives of the Unit have seized 81,425 litres of premium motor spirit in Badagry.

Acting Controller of the unit, Hussein Ejibunu, disclosed this during a briefing at the weekend.

He then seized PMS was packed in jerrycans and sacks by suspected smugglers who used dane guns to shoot at Customs officers who made the seizure.

He said the seizures were the results of painstaking intelligence and perseverance on the part of FOU officers who were committed to protecting the national economy.

Deputy Comptroller Ejibunu described perpetrators of trans-border fuel smuggling as saboteurs that must be stopped as they don’t mean well to the country.

He decried a situation where the Federal Government spends a huge amount of money to subsidise fuel for Nigerian citizens’ benefit, only for a few persons to be smuggling the subsidised fuel out of Nigeria for selfish gains.

He said, “The seizure is a result of serious intelligence. We have been monitoring them since last week, and the information came to me that some people are using sacks to smuggle petroleum products out of Nigeria.

“We put a tab on them and their cup became full yesterday. And what baffles me is the manner of loading, which I consider highly ingenious.

“For someone to think that instead of carrying drums like the ones we intercepted a few days ago from Ayegun border where they brought in about 60 drums containing PMS about to be moved from Nigeria and hid them in a bush; it was where they went to secure trucks that we swooped on them.

“The only difference in this new one is that they used sacks to conceal the product and put them close to a creek, from where they will be ferried out.

“The implications in the economy are multifaceted, in the sense that firstly, our country subsidized petroleum products for us for our own use, yet some recalcitrant people who believe that that is the way they can always survive still believe it is to shortchange the nation as well. And it is criminal, because it is our collective patrimony, yet some people now believe that they can smuggle it to make gains.

“When my men got there at exactly 1330hrs, they were shot at with dane guns. And you know that there is a difference between dane guns, pump action guns and assault rifles like AK47.

“They fired their dane guns a few times and ran away, and since it was their terrain, they knew all the nooks and crannies to use for escape. We took possession because I moved in with 18 Hilux vehicles loaded with officers who were armed to the teeth because I was ready and knew what could come up.

“We have not slept; we went there this morning to see what we apprehended, and it was massive. The implications on the economy are multifaceted, in the sense that firstly, subsidized petroleum products for us for our own use, yet some recalcitrant people who believe that, that is the way they can always survive still believe it is to shortchange the nation as well. And it is criminal, because it is our collective patrimony, yet some people now believe that they can smuggle it to make gain,” he enthused.
