Gbagir who was brutalized by the officers of the commission and is currently undergoing surgery in an Abuja Hospital had in an update to Lawyers narrated how the Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa boasted that he had a good working relationship with Judges even if the brutalized NBA Boss sue the commissionIn a rejoinder, EFCC Head of Media, Wilson Uwujaren, said the NBA Chairman’s report was inaccurate.
He regretted how Bawa’s gesture in meeting with Gbagir over an incident involving him and the commission’s officers degenerated into a weapon of blackmail.Uwujaren explained that Bawa met Gbagir to give him fair hearing and explore avenues to address his complaints.
“At no time during the encounter was there reference to judges and their soft spot or the lack of it, for the EFCC boss and the Commission”, he noted.The spokesman said as a law enforcement officer with over 16 years experience, Bawa is conversant with the impartiality of the judiciary and could not have made a disrespectful utterance.
“To have invented such a remark and ascribed it to the EFCC chair is not only disingenuous but grossly irresponsible”, the statement added.
