The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, on Thursday questioned the National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Muiz Banire (SAN), for about seven hours, Punch report says.
In addition, the anti -graft commission seized his passport before releasing him on administrative bail.
The APC stalwart, who is a former Lagos State Commissioner for Transport, was quizzed for the alleged bribery of a judge.
The senior advocate was said to have transferred about N500, 000 to Justice Terseer Agbadu-Fishim of the National Industrial Court.
A source said, “While detectives were probing Justice Fishim’s account, they discovered that Banire deposited money into the judge’s account. So, we invited him and he did not deny it. He only said the money was not a bribe.
“Banire was quizzed by the EFCC for several hours and his passport was seized from him. He will return for more questioning as investigations continue.”
