Fraud: Again, EFCC storms Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia’s house

ajumgobia-houseOperatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday visited the house of Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia,.

The operatives, according to a monitored report  on Channels TV arrived at Ms. Ofili-Ajumogobia’s Ikoyi, Lagos home at 7 a.m. and attempted to search her property, but were denied access.

It was not clear whether she is being investigated for another offence especially at a time when the anti-graft agency had charged the judge to court and declared that it had concluded investigations.

The embattled justice is being tried alongside Godwin Obla, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, on allegations of corruption.

Specifically, Ms. Ofili-Ajumogobia is facing a 26-count charge of unlawful enrichment, forgery, and providing false information to an EFCC official.

Mr. Obla is being charged with bribing Ms. Ofili-Ajumogobia with N5m while she was presiding over one of Mr. Obla’s cases.
