The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu has said that he is not against lawyers but a few bad ones among them who are teaming up with corrupt persons to thwart justice. Magu made the clarification in a statement signed by the Spokesman for the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren. He said his recent comments regarding the conduct of judicial officials were not intended to impugn their integrity.
“There is no way one can make a blanket statement on the integrity of lawyers and judges. Nigeria is blessed with some of the best lawyers and judges on the African continent.”
“My worry is that the bad ones amongst them are giving the good ones a bad name,” he said. There is no blanket condemnation of lawyers and judges but, the corrupt few will not be spared”, he reiterated.
