There was mild drama at the premises of an Ikeja High court as officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) apprehended a dismissed judge of the Federal High court, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, after corruption charges against her were struck out.

 It was gathered that about ten officials of the EFCC surrounded Ofili-Ajumogobia as she attempted to leave the courtroom after the ruling by Justice Hakeem Oshodi.

Upon sighting the officials, the judge made a hasty retreat and went back upstairs into Justice Oshodi’s courtroom to seek the protection of the court from the EFCC officials but Justice Oshodi said there was nothing he could do as the file had been closed.

The embattled former judge and her husband, who was with her, were observed frantically making various phone calls.

Immediately Justice Oshodi’s court rose, Mrs. Ofili-Ajumogobia was apprehended by some EFCC officials who whisked her away.
