Bawa, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was convicted for contempt of court in relation to his agency’s failure to comply with an earlier order of the court.

Justice Chizoba Oji, in a ruling, held that “the Chairman Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is in contempt of the orders of this honourable court made on November 21st 2018 directing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abuja to return to the applicant his Range Rover (Super charge) and the sum of N40, 000,000.00 (Forty Million Naira).”

The judge continued: “Having continued wilfully in disobedience to the order of this court, he should be committed to prison at Kuje Correctional Centre for his disobedience, and continued disobedience of the said order of court made on November 21st, 2018, until he purges himself of the contempt.

“The Inspector General of Police shall ensure that the order of this honourable court is executed forthwith.”

Justice Orji disregarded the justifications offered by Francis Jirbo, the EFCC’s attorney, for his client’s behavior.

The ruling was given on a motion on notice filed by Air Vice Marshal (AVM) Rufus Adeniyi Ojuawo, a former Director of Operations for the Nigerian Air Force, on October 28 in Abuja (NAF).

In a motion submitted by his attorney, R.N. Ojabo, Ojuawo had complained that the EFCC had refused to abide by the court’s November 21, 2018, delivered judgment ordering the release of his seized property.
