EFCC arrests female High Court registrar

11 October 2016, 17:48

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last Thursday arrested Helen Ogunleye, a registrar at the Federal High Court in Lagos with a record of pairing up senior lawyers with corrupt judges to pervert justice.

She was detained overnight before being granted bail on Friday.

SaharaReporters further learned that forensic investigations of some of the high-profile lawyers undergoing prosecution by the agency show that Ogunleye has also been a conduit for transferring cash from the lawyers to some of the corrupt judges.

An analysis of telephone calls from Joe Nwobike, a senior lawyer recently arrested by the EFCC, which showed that Ogunleye had previously helped pair him with a federal high court judge who is now serving in the Jos Division.

Several text messages between her and some judges also show that she had perfected a way to funnel bribes to them.

Ogunleye is said to be cooperating with EFCC investigators.

Meanwhile judges in the Federal Capital Territory on Monday abandoned their various duty posts to protest last weekend’s arrest of their colleagues in different parts of the country on allegations of corruption according to News24.
