The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has finalised plans to probe the judges that were arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS).

The DSS had earlier accused some senior judicial officers of corruption and professional misconduct.

According to Punch, the anti-graft agency swung into action following a directive by President Muhammadu Buhari.

An EFCC source said, “The commission has taken over the probe into the allegation of corruption against those judges whose residents were raided by operatives of the DSS.”

The source also revealed that some Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN) were arrested for allegedly paying money into the judges’ accounts.

The EFCC also decried the publicity that followed the arrest of the judges by the DSS, adding that it has made it impossible for them to investigate the matter secretly.

According to reports, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu, expressed shock at the indictment of top lawyers in corruption cases.
