Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invaded the home of embattled Justice of the Federal High Court, Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, yesterday morning, at about 5.00 a.m. to conduct a search.

It was gathered that the men of the anti-graft agency, who arrived in their numbers, surrounded the Park View Estate, Lagos residence of the judge. According to the Head, Public Affairs of the Lagos zone of the commission, Samin Amaddin, the operatives went to the house in search of Ofili-Ajumogobia’s daughter, Aridim Tochukwu and son, Goziem.

FactNews recalls that Justice Ajumogobia and Godwin Obla (SAN) were in EFCC detention since early November before their arraignment on the 28th 0f November when they were granted bail in the sum of Twenty Million Naira each by Justice Akeem Oshodi of the Lagos state High Court based on self recognition

According to the EFCC, they discovered that the United Kingdom account in which she was lodging monies was opened by her daughter.

“We sent a letter to her house, inviting the daughter and she did not appear or respond. When she was arraigned at the Lagos High Court, the lady surprisingly appeared. Before we could approach her, she sneaked away. We reminded her mother of the invitation and she promised she would honour it but never did.

“So, on Tuesday, we got intelligence report that the lady is in town and decided to go and get her. But we did not see her. We only saw her mother, who promised to bring her to our office later in the day. She fulfilled her promise and brought two of them to our office. So they are presently in our office undergoing interrogation,” Amaddin said.

Wondering why EFCC would conduct such a surprise raid on the home of a person who has already been arraigned in court, one of Ofili-Ajumogobia’s lawyers said the action was unlawful and an abuse of human right.
