Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Rickey Tarfa, has
filed a lawsuit against telecommunications
company, MTN Nigeria, and EFCC for the alleged
violation of his right to privacy. EFCC had on
February 5 arrested Rickey Tarfa and confiscated
his mobile phones & Mercedez Benz SUV, on
the allegation that he hid two alleged suspects
in his car to prevent their arrest.
Tarfa is seeking a court declaration that his
right to privacy was violated when his phone
call records/log was allegedly accessed without
his authority and made available to Sahara
Reporters and other online news media without
a lawful court order.
He is urging the court to order MTN and EFCC
to pay him N5billion for the violation of his rights.
