The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is extending the war against corruption in the judicial arm to the bar. It has  invited eight Senior Advocates of Nigeria( SANs) for interrogation over alleged payments into judges’ accounts.

This is coming three weeks after the Department of State Security (DSS) raided the homes of several judges, including two justices of the Supreme Court, and arrested them for alleged corruption.

But the EFCC,after  intercepting  test messages, have now extended the scope of the investigation to the bar, summoning eight senior lawyers suspected of corrupting judges.
