A Federal High Court Judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, has finally turned in herself to the operatives after ignoring two invitations from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to appear before its operatives to answer to allegations of corrupt practices.

Ofili-Ajumogobia, who was invited alongside five other judges, reportedly told EFCC operatives that she was in the Intensive Care Unit of a hospital and would not be able to honour its invitation.

“Our operatives quickly told her that they were already in the ICU of the hospital, a development that shocked the judge. At that point, she immediately switched off her phone,” one of the sources close to the commission said.

“We later found out that an administrative staff of the hospital was trying to insert the Judge’s name into its record as an in-patient but was questioned for the illegal action. Our correspondent learnt that the EFCC had completed moves to arrest the judge just before she turned in herself to the commission last night.

It will be recalled that in March this year, the National Judicial Council had imposed heavy disciplinary measures on Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia, including precluding her from any promotions to the Court of Appeal or any Ad-hoc judicial appointment until her retirement from the profession.
