BREAKING: EFCC slams charges on Nigerian senior lawyer, Ricky Tarfa, ‘for obstruction of justice’

Scandal Rocks EFCC Recruitment Process

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is set to arraign a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Ricky Tarfa, on a two- count charge bordering on obstruction of justice and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

Mr. Tarfa was arrested on Friday, February 5, by operatives of the EFCC in Lagos, where he allegedly hid two suspects – Nazaire Sorou Gnanhoue and Modeste Finagnon, both Beninoise – in his Mercedes Benz Sports Utility car, thereby shielding them from being arrested and willfully obstructing the course of justice.

The suspects were alleged to have fraudulently converted some sophisticated manufacturing equipment belonging to Rana Prestige Nigeria Limited for their own use.
