Ricky Tarfa

Embattled Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Chief Rickey Tarfa Friday admitted that he gave N225, 000 to a sitting judge of the Federal High Court, Justice M. N. Yunusa, on January 7, 2014. 

He said the N225, 000 was not a bribe, but a donation from him and some of his friends towards the burial of Justice Yunusa’s father-in-law who died on December 28, 2013.

In an affidavit filed on his behalf at the Federal High Court Lagos, before Justice Mohammed Idris by one John Olusegun Odubela, Head of Chambers of Messrs Rickey Tarfa and Co., dated February 18, the learned silk denied bribing the judge with the money or ‘any other sum at all.’

Tarfa appeared Friday before Justice Idris in continuation of his N2.5 billion fundamental rights suit against the Economic and Finanacial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for wrongful arrest and detention.
