The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has refuted media report that it’s operatives stormed the home of a serving justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Peter Odili.

The anti-graft agency spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said the report is false. A statement he issued stated is as follows:

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to claims in a section of the media that operatives of the Commission today, October 29, 2021 stormed the Maitama, Abuja home of a Judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Odili, purportedly to execute a search.The Commission by this statement wishes to inform the public that the report is false as it did not carry out any operation at the home of Justice Odili.

 If there was any such operation as claimed by the media, it was not carried out by the EFCC.

 The Commission enjoins the public to discountenance the report.”
