Abuja - Operatives from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have caught a federal high court judge in a fake hospital admission scandal in Lagos.

The judge, however, revealed that she was on admission in a Lagos-based medical facility, stating that she could not appear at the offices of the anti-graft agency.

Things turned sour for Ofili-Ajumogobia when EFCC agents arrived at the Golden Cross Hospital to find that she had not been at the hospital since October 13 and that staff from the facility had been in collusion with her to insert her name as a patient when she had not even been admitted.
