EFCC Storms Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia’s Ikoyi Home

Posted on December 7, 2016

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), have visited the home of Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, at Park View Estate in Ikoyi, Lagos.

It was gathered that the EFCC officials who stormed the house at about 7am on Wednesday, were there to conduct a search but eventually left after being denied access into the house.

Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia and Godwin Obla, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), are being prosecuted for allegedly perverting the course of justice by the anti-graft agency.
While Ofili-Ajumogobia faces a 26-count charge of unlawful enrichment, forgery and giving false information to an official of the EFCC, among others, Obla is charged with offering gratification in the sum of five million Naira, to Ofili-Ajumogobia during her service as a judge.

Both have however pleaded not guilty to the charges.
