Nigeria Supreme Court Lawyer Declared Missing

Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili is said to be missing after security personnel stormed her Abuja home.

Following the alleged unlawful invasion of Justice Mary Odili’s family residence in the Maitama area of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), by security agents on Friday, many people have become concerned about her location and safety, according to bestnewsnet.

At around 5 p.m. on Friday, the Supreme Court Judge’s home on lmo Rivers Street in Maitama was raided by fully armed plain-clothed security men for undisclosed reasons.

Soldiers and officials of the Nigeria Police Group (NPF) introduced themselves as members of a combined task force, according to the security men.

Security workers monitoring the property were claimed to have objected to the house being taken over without a court order because they persisted on staying around the house, waiting for the inhabitants to surrender so they could take control.

However, according to one bestnewsnet outlet, Justice Odili has not been seen or made a public statement since the purported invasion of her home.

Meanwhile, Best News Network reported earlier this week that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied accusations that its operatives raided Justice Mary Odili’s Abuja house.
Anti-graft operatives are said to have raided Justice Odili’s home in Abuja’s Maitama neighborhood to carry out a search warrant as part of investigations into her husband, Peter Odili, who served as Governor of Rivers State from 1999 to 2007.

In a statement on its official Facebook page, the EFCC, however, stated that its operatives did not carry out “any such operation as portrayed by the media.”

From EFCC, “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to claims in a section of the media that operatives of the Commission today, October 29, 2021 stormed the Maitama, Abuja home of a Judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Mary Odili, purportedly to execute a search.

“The Commission by this statement wishes to inform the public that the report is false as it did not carry out any operation at the home of Justice Odili.

“If there was any such operation as claimed by the media, it was not carried out by the EFCC. The Commission enjoins the public to discountenance the report,” the EFCC stated.
