EFCC uncovers N18m in female judge’s foreign account

02 November 2016, 13:27

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has uncovered a financial transaction amounting to N18m by Justice Rita Ngozi Ofili-Ajumogobia, one of the six judges under investigation.

The commission according to The Nation stumbled on the N18 million wired into the foreign account from her domiciliary account for the purchase of a property in the United Kingdom (UK).

Sources said Ajumogbobia owned up to the money but claimed it was a loan obtained from a family friend.

It was, however, learnt that there was no formal agreement or documentation on payment plan.

Justice Ofili-Ajumogbobia is among the six judges being investigated by the commission for alleged corruption alongside some senior lawyers.

The other five judges include Justice Nasiru Mohammed Yunusa, Justice Hydlezira A. Nganjiwa, Justice Uwani Abba Aji, Justice Agbadu Jamus Fishim and Justice Musa H. Kuriya.
