The National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Muiz Banire, has debunked a report suggesting that he allegedly bribed Justice Teeser Agbadu-Fishim of the National Industrial Court with N500,000.

In a statement issued Saturday and signed by the senior advocate, Banire said he was never arrested or invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), adding that he visited the commission’s office after he read about the allegation against him on the social media.

While admitting transferring a gift of N500,000 to a former colleague in the academia in need in 2013, Banire, however, said: “The occasion of the gift was purely customary for the purpose of assisting in the burial of his deceased mother.”
