The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied any raid on the farm allegedly linked to the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
It was reported that about nine EFCC operatives, a cameraman and policemen in a Nissan bus marked Abuja BWR 627AT raided Wanogan Farms Limited located in the Masaka area of Nasarawa State around 3pm and searched the entire premises for over three hours.
The anti-corruption agency in a telephone conversation with Channels Television, through its spokesperson, Tony Orilade, denied being aware of any search by operatives of the agency on the property reportedly linked to the suspended CJN.
Recall that EFFC had 24 hours ago dismiss reports on a raid at the suspended CJN’s residence, adding that it never went to his house.
While also denying reports about an invitation from the EFCC to the CJN, the agency described these reports as ‘fake news’.
The anti-graft agency, therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard all unfounded claims and be rest assured that the commission will fight corruption in line with the agency’s mandate.
Justice Onnoghen is facing six charges bordering on failure to declare his assets and operating a domiciliary account, among other charges. at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
