A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ricky Tarfa has been charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for obstructing agents of the anti-corruption outfit last Friday as they tried to arrest two Beninoise nationals for fraud.

Mr. Tarfa spent close to 48 hours in detention before he was granted bail on Sunday evening as leaders of the Nigerian Bar Association and several senior lawyers mounted pressure on the EFCC.

An EFCC source told Saharareporters that Mr. Tarfa would face serious charges of obstruction of justice as their investigations have revealed that he illegally communicated with a judge in several cases involving agency. Investigators at the EFCC said they found the call logs between Mr. Tarfa and Justice Mohammed Yunusa of the Federal High Court in Lagos.
