Irony Of Life: Judge Orders Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia Into The Dock


The arraignment of Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court and Chief Godwin Obla (SAN), for alleged bribery is currently underway before a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja.
The presiding judge, Justice T. Oshodi, just ordered the defendants into the dock.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is represented by Mr. Rotimi Oyedepo, Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia by Mr. Wale Akoni (SAN), and Obla by Mr. Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN),

 EFCC sources alleged that about $793,800 passed through Justice Ajumogobia’s domiciliary accounts between 2012 and 2015 and that the judge allegedly used the money to buy a house in London.

The two accounts, Access Bank (0002649223) and Diamond Bank (0032091183) have since been frozen by the EFCC. Five of the charges are centered on an alleged N5m bribe given to the judge by the senior advocate while the remaining 25 charges are on the huge amounts that passed through the accounts of Ofili-Ajumogobia and her alleged inability to explain her source of wealth
