EFCC Distances Itself From Police Lawyer’s Charges Against Stella Oduah

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disowned a police lawyer, Ibrahim Mohammed, who filed a criminal charge against a former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah.

In a surprising turn of events, the EFCC has distanced itself from one of its own, police lawyer Ibrahim Mohammed, who recently filed a criminal charge against former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah.

The counsel for EFCC, Helen Okonofua, informed Justice James Omotoso of the Federal High Court in Abuja that Mohammed, a Superintendent of Police, from the Legal Department of the Force Headquarters, was not authorised to file any criminal charge against Oduah.

Helen Okonofua, counsel for the EFCC, confidently informed Justice James Omotoso of the Federal High Court in Abuja that Ibrahim Mohammed, a Superintendent of Police from the Legal Department of the Force Headquarters, had no authority to bring any criminal charges against Stella Oduah.

The counsel stated that Mohammed was initially with EFCC but was seconded from EFCC back to the Police on November 4, 2022, and since has nothing to do with the EFCC.

It seems that there has been a serious mix-up, as Helen Okonofua explains that Ibrahim Mohammed was originally part of the EFCC but was seconded back to the Police on November 4, 2022. Therefore, he no longer has any affiliation with the EFCC.

The counsel informed Justice Omotoso that the police lawyer had been investigated by EFCC as ordered by the judge and that the report of the findings would be filed at the Registry of the Court and be made available to the court thereafter.

Further complicating matters, Helen Okonofua revealed to Justice Omotoso that the police lawyer, Ibrahim Mohammed, had already been investigated by the EFCC, as ordered by the judge. The report of the findings will be filed at the Registry of the Court and subsequently provided to the court.

The trial judge in a small ruling, fixed October 4, 2023, for the EFCC to formally make the report of the findings available to the court.

In a minor ruling, Justice Omotoso has scheduled October 4, 2023, as the date for the EFCC to officially present the report of their investigation to the court.

Justice Omotoso had on Tuesday, July 11 handed the police lawyer over to EFCC for filing frivolous criminal charges against the former Minister in the name of EFCC.

Back in July, Justice Omotoso had passed Ibrahim Mohammed, the police lawyer, over to the EFCC after bringing frivolous criminal charges against the former Minister, using the EFCC’s name.
