EFCC speaks on raiding Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili’s residence

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted to media reports that its operatives raided the Abuja residence of Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili.

Mrs Odili place of abode was reportedly being raided Friday evening with its agents attempting to break in.

But in a statement by Wilson Uwajaren, its spokesman, the anti-graft agency denied involvement in such operation.

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to claims in a section of the media that operatives of the Commission today, October 29, 2021 stormed the Maitama, Abuja home of a Judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Odili, purportedly to execute a search,” Mr Uwajaren claimed. “The Commission by this statement wishes to inform the public that the report is false as it did not carry out any operation at the home of Justice Odili.

“If there was any such operation as claimed by the media, it was not carried out by the EFCC. The Commission enjoins the public to discountenance the report.”
