Nov 6, 2016 – Corrupt Female Nigerian Judge Rita Ofili’s Brother Arrested For Wiring $150,000 Into Her Diamond Bank Account

Operatives of the EFCC have arrested a brother to Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia after they discovered that he once wired $150,000 into her Diamond Bank Domiciliary Account.

EFCC investigators said that the judge’s brother had wired the huge sum into her account in March 2014.

EFCC sources that the younger Ofili, has not been able to explain to investigators how he came about the huge amount of money and why it was routed to the judge’s account.

The arrest of Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia’s brother is a significant development in the EFCC’s investigation of corruption in the judicial arm of the government.

The arrest comes after the investigative agency’s earlier invitation of a former Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) executive, Greg Ero, from whom Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia claimed she had borrowed funds to buy her home in London.

Mr. Ero, who is reportedly in poor health, has been regularly reporting to the EFCC offices in Lagos. An EFCC source told our correspondent that the former NNPC executive too had not been able to explain how he came about the sums of monies he reportedly gave to Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia as a loan.

Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia is one of numerous judges currently under investigation by the EFCC for alleged acts of corruption. Investigators believe she and other judges frequently accepted huge sums in bribe in order to tailor judicial verdicts in favor of those who offered the bribes, often elected public officials.

    EFCC thank you for your investigation on this case. This is a case of pure Money Laundry against Judge Ofili. This Judge tried to outsmart EFCC not knowing that EFCC as an entity comprises of intelligent officers.

    This is Judge was offered bribe instead of receiving it directly, she told whoever offered her the money to deposit it to her brothers account then she later asked her brother to write her a check for $150,000 dollars. She taught EFCC will never find out but now that money was traced back to her. her brother couldn’t account for how he got that huge amount of money or did he get it from selling rice too?.

    This Country is finished. What kind of verdict do you expect from this Judge? she has been bribed to switch guilty verdict to non guilty vise versa.

    As I have said before the cleaning up this Country must start from our Judiciary. We can never kill corruption without first cleaning up our judiciary first.
