The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to take disciplinary action against its agents who invaded the house of a Court of Appeal judge, Ita Mbaba, in the wee hours of Wednesday in Kano, Kano State.

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to take disciplinary action against its agents who invaded the house of a Court of Appeal judge, Ita Mbaba, in the wee hours of Wednesday in Kano, Kano State.

NBA President, Yakubu Maikyau, in a statement, also asked the commission to issue a public apology to Mbaba.

“The NBA strongly condemns the intrusion of the residence of His Lordship. It is unwarranted and completely unacceptable. Whilst we do not in any way, oppose and will not stand in the way of the EFCC or any other law enforcement agency in the discharge of its statutory duties, the NBA will lawfully resist any attempt to harass, intimidate or in any way bully judges and justices.

“We, therefore, call on the EFCC to, not only take appropriate disciplinary actions against the concerned officers, but also issue a public apology to His Lordship, the Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Kano Division and the entire judiciary.

“The NBA will monitor the observance of these demands,” the statement stated.
