A Retired Judge’s Account With N840m, Says ICPC

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has filed an application before a Federal High Court in Abuja for the interim forfeiture  of N840 million in a retired female judge’s account.

The judge under probe is a retired President of the Benue State Customary Court of Appeal, Mrs. Margaret Igbeta.

She has been accused of opening an account in the name of her housemaid, Theodora Atsu with an initial deposit of N8 million. The account had accumulated N870,321,492.15 between 2008 and 2019. When ICPC investigators stepped in, about N840 million was left in the account.

Mrs. Rasheedat A.
