  1. Justice Affren has taken this human rights issue too far. There’s something foundamentally wrong or indequate about Nigerian laws. It denies the Nigerian State the authority to protect and preserve itself from people who are experts at circumventing the law.. Affren must think about how many Nigerians could be fed with N10 million. The Austrian was arrested for a particular reason. Nigerian justices tend not only to pervert the law, they also weaken it thus making the system a joke. An embarrassing joke to the point where a detainee for obvious reasons turns around to sue the Feferal government. Dasuki is a good example.There MUST not be such a loophole in matters of national security. This is where the judges in Nigeria constantly err. National security MUST superceed personal rights and liberties. EFCC should not pay the fine and needs to appeal the ruling.

    • I wish kanayo is aware of the comendable and brilliant services Mr Wolgang Reinl provided for Nigerian security, He helped tremendously in the success of our air and ground troops with the equipment, skils and expertise his security firm and foreign security advisers provided for Nigeria. I know what I am talking about because I am a military man too

    • No amount of national security allows EFCC or any other security agency to trample on Nigerians’ or foreigner’s fundamental human rights. EFCC have to learn to do their job through DUE PROCESS. Every human being has the right to fair hearing and EFCC’s abuse of their authority in recent times needs to be in check.

  2. The Austrian should be given his passport and deported. Nigeria also has the right to blacklist him. You can’t bite the fingers that feed you. This is Nigeria not Austria. Justice Affen did not in his ruling mention a damn thing about the security and rights of the Nigerian State and the constitutional provision that preserves those rights. Him and other judges currently prosecuting corruption cases think the crooked thieves and their foundamental human rights comes first before that of the Nigerian State. Such judges belong in family and traffic courts. Every crooked business man and politician in Nigeria wants to steal and embezzle as much as possible and then use the courts to evade prosecution( using the jargon…. Foundamental human rights and oversea medical needs. Unfortunately for Nigeria, the present crop of senators will not strengthen the law but would rather weaken it, as witnessed in the penultimate effort to weaken the Justice Umar court.

    • Please asked security and intelligence officer to tell you what the guy did for Nigeria because crucifying him. Wolgang is married to Nigerian and a Nigerian resident

  4. The judge must be commended for his courage and fearlessness in telling the EFCC the naked truth. The anti-corruption agency is not prepared for any case but just like dragging reputation of individuals and groups to the mud. Everyone must support the anti-corruption war but it must be done by following the rule of law and due process
