Crime Watch

Federal High Court in Abuja has stopped the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and three others from proceeding with their renewed probe of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.


The Department of State Services (DSS), the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission (ICPC) and the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) are also affected by the restraining orders.


Justice Taiwo gave the verdict on Tuesday following two ex-parte motions filed by Saraki with two fundamental rights enforcement applications. The orders, according to the judge, are to subsist pending the hearing and conclusion of the two fundamental rights suits by Saraki.
