Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Rickey Tarfa, has been arraigned at the Lagos High Court in Igbosere, Lagos Island.
Our judiciary correspondent, Shola Soyele reports that he was arraigned before the court by the EFCC on charges of obstruction of justice.
Mr Tarfa was arrested by the EFCC last week for allegedly hiding two Beninoise suspects – Nazaire Gnanhoue and Modeste Finagnon – in his Mercedes Benz Sports Utility Vehicle.
The suspects were alleged to have fraudulently converted some equipment belonging to a manufacturing firm, Rana Prestige Nigeria Limited, for their own use.
The anti-graft agency arrested the Senior Advocate of Nigeria at about 5:00 pm local time on Friday, February 5, outside the premises of the Lagos High Court in Igbosere area of Lagos Island.
