According to new report from PUNCH, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court who is already under investigation is in fresh trouble for allegedly receiving N5m from a Senior Advocate of Nigeria.
Sources within the EFCC revealed that the SAN had been invited to explain what the money was meant for. A detective in the EFCC said, “We have evidence that Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia collected N5m from a senior advocate. We have invited him (the SAN) and he is supposed to appear this week.”
Ofili-Ajumogobia, who acquitted a former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, last year is believed to own properties worth almost a billion naira in Lekki, Ikoyi and London. Earlier in the year, the National Judicial Council barred her from getting any promotion for the remainder of her career.
