It is safe to say that even the law and legal proceedings are not free from a little of the bizarre. Arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on charges of obstructing the arrest of two persons alleged to have committed financial crimes.
Rickey Tarfa’s legal team was made up of 90 Senior Advocates of Nigeria in what will go down as the most ridiculous example of legal grandstanding possible.
A Lagos state High Court granted Rickey Tarfa bail on self recognizance yesterday but will be required to seek the permission of the court before travelling outside Nigeria.
The Presiding judge, Justice Aishat Opesanwo commented on Rickey Tarfa’s legal team and opined that Tarfa’s actions amounted to an attempt to harass the court.
Rickey Tarfa’s counsel also put in an application to dismiss the charges filed against him. The dismissal application will be held on March 14.
