Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) acting chairman Ibrahim Magu has warned judges and lawyers involved in election petition tribunals against money laundering.

 He said they must not allow the corrupting influence of money and other inducements to influence the process and determine the outcome of petitions.

 Magu, in a statement, noted that many judges wrongly see election tribunals and appeal panels as potential gold mines.

 He added that the EFCC has the statutory powers to monitor, track, investigate, arrest and prosecute such and other offences.

 According to Magu, all lawyers and judges at the tribunals have a responsibility to dispense justice without inducement, fear or favour.
