EFCC Raids Justice Rita Ofili-Ajimogobia's Residence

Barely 72 hours after turning herself in to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Rita Ofili-Ajimogobia residence got raided by operatives of the EFCC during which ‘vital’ documents belonging to Ofili that may point to criminal breaches were allegedly retrieved.

According to Vanguard Sunday, a top operative said that bank accounts of the woman and those of her children were also taken away by the security operatives during the raid.


“A search was conducted on the residence of Justice Rita Ofili- Ajumogobia by operatives of the EFCC and the search yielded documents that would assist the commission’s investigations, including bank accounts in her name and those bearing the names of her children and property title both in Nigeria and abroad”.
The female judge had been having a running battle with the EFCC, including the claim she took shelter in a Lagos hospital, before turning in herself last Thursday. She had been accused by a litigant of corruption before the National Judicial Council, NJC, moved against her early this year but was not removed from her post.

Meanwhile, the EFCC has taken up the case to make her face prosecution for graft-related matters. It was not clear last night if the agency would charge her to court and when that would be.
