Court stops EFCC from further investigating Benue State Accounts





By Ikechukwu Nnochiri

ABUJA – The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, on Monday, restrained the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, from conducting further investigations into the finances of Benue State.

The court directed the anti-agency to suspend action pending the determination of the suit that was lodged before it by the Benue State Government.

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba who sat as a vacation Judge, gave the preservative order on a day EFCC honoured a summon the court issued to it on August 9, following allegation that it froze Benue State accounts.

It will be recalled that the former vacation Judge, Justice Babatunde Quadri, had after he listened to submissions by counsel to Benue State Government, Mr. Emeka Etiaba, SAN, ordered EFCC to appear in court to explain why it took the action.
