The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has lodged a complaint against alleged misconduct of a judge of the Federal High Court, Justice M. N. Yunusa, with the National Judicial Council (NJC). It was also learnt yesterday that the NJC got two more petitions against the judge.
The two petitions were said to be in respect of some matters –Honeywell v ECOBANK and Sterling Bank v Joma Frozen Foods Product Limited. The NJC began a two-day session in Abuja yesterday but it was unclear if the petitions against Justice Yunusa will be heard.
The EFCC’s complaint had been submitted to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed for onward transmission to NJC.
