The Presidency, has revealed on Wednesday evening, why petitions against Judges bordering on alleged corrupt acts, were forwarded to the Department of State Services, DSS, rather than the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, which is primarily saddled with the responsibility of fighting corruption.
It was discovered, that the EFCC had failed to act on previous petitions forwarded to them, from the Ministry of Justice, as expected.
Before now, investigations showed that the relationship between the EFCC and the Ministry of Justice, had been frosty.
The DSS, had in what it called a sting operation, arrested Sylvester Ngwuta, and Inyang Okoro, both of the Supreme Court; the suspended presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Ilorin Division, Justice Mohammed Tsamiya; Justice Kabiru Auta, of the Kano State High Court; and Justice Adeniyi Ademola, of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Others arrested, were a former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice I. A. Umezulike; and Muazu Pindiga, of the Federal High Court, Gombe Division.
It was gathered, on Wednesday, that the EFCC was bitter, because it was already investigating some of the Judges, who were arrested by the DSS, on Friday and Saturday.
It was also learnt, that the rivalry between the two Agencies came to a head, when the EFCC allegedly opposed the takeover of the investigations of some petitions against some Judges, which it had already worked on.
A top government source, revealed that the EFCC was also not favourably disposed to investigating some Judges, who had assisted in the speedy trial of graft cases, instituted by the Commission.
The source stated, “The point of disagreement, came from the investigation into the petitions. While the EFCC thought that the DSS should steer clear of the petitions, because it had already worked on them, the service and the Federal Ministry of Justice, insisted that the Commission was slow in its investigations”.

A source in the EFCC, explained that if not for the rivalry, the DSS should have involved the Commission, in the investigation into the graft allegations against the Judges.
He stated, that the anti-graft Commission, was of the view that the DSS disrupted on-going investigations being carried out by it, into the alleged corrupt practices by some Judges.
According to him, the EFCC has been carrying out discreet investigations into the activities of three Judges, which were said to be jeopardized by the raids conducted by the DSS.
“It is a DSS operation. The EFCC is not involved. The raids carried out on the Judges’ residents, have affected our ongoing investigation into the activities of some of the Judges”.
It was gathered, that the relationship between the Ministry and the anti-graft Agency, has actually not been cordial, since Buhari sent the Money Laundering (Prevention and Prohibition) Bill 2016, to the National Assembly, through the AGF, earlier this year.
The EFCC, definitely sees nothing good about the law, though it acknowledges that the extant Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act 2011, (amended in 2012), needs to be amended again.
On the new law, the EFCC catalogued what it considered the many flaws of the new bill, in a position paper, which it submitted to the National Assembly.
