Court dismisses Ricky Tarfa’s ‘no case’ submission

A Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere on Friday dismissed the no case submission made by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Rickey Tarfa.

Justice Adedayo Akintoye ruled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had substantially proved its case against Tarfa.

The judge noted that the justice of the case thus requires that the court should demand some explanations from the defendant in respect of the charges.

She ordered Tarfa to enter his defence on the next adjourned date – March 13.

Justice Akintoye also dismissed Tarfa’s application; seeking N520 million from the EFCC as damages for alleged malicious prosecution.

The judge described the application as unmeritorious.

The EFCC arraigned Tarfa on March 10, 2016 on a 27-count charge which was subsequently amended to 26 counts.

He was accused of alleged willful obstruction of authorised EFCC officials, refusal to declare assets and giving false information to a public officer by lying about his age.

The Commission also alleged, among others, that the lawyer offered N5.3million gratification to Justice Hyeladzira Nganjiwa in order to compromise the judge.

Tarfa pleaded not guilty to the charges.
