Judges: Makurdi NBA Chairman’s statement against EFCC, not true

In related development, the attention of the economic and financial crimes commission, efcc, has been drawn to a report captioned:

“even if you go to court. I have a good working relationship with Judges” which was attributed to the Benue Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Justin Gbagir. The story was published in the online media on monday august 9, 2021.

The EFCC said it wishes to state that the comment ascribed to the executive chairman, mr. abdulrasheed bawa, is patently false and should be discountenanced.

They continued by saying that it was regrettable that a compassionate gesture by the Executive Chairman in meeting with Gbagir over an alleged incident involving him and some officers of the Makurdi Zonal Command of the Commission has degenerated into a weapon of blackmail.
