Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Godwin Obla granted N20m each

Justice Akeem Oshodi of the Lagos state High Court today granted Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Godwin Obla, bail based on self recognition in the sum of Twenty Million Naira each which is to be deposited with the registrar of the court. Ajumogobia and Obla were Monday arraigned on a 30-count charge of offering gratification to a public servant, unlawful enrichment, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and giving false information to an officer of the Commission.
Justice Oshodi granted their bail applications and ordered them to deposit their International Passports with the court. Both Ajumogobia and Obla were given a 7 day ultimatum to perfect the bail conditions, otherwise their bail will be revoked.
During their trial, the first prosecuting witness, Ademola Oshodi, who is a branch manager of Diamond Bank, told the court that he is Justice Ajumogobia's account manager and carried out various transactions for her.
He said he used to receive monies in Naira and U.S Dollars and that he often made deposits into her Diamond bank account. Ademola further revealed that there were transactions between him and the defendant wherein he would receive monies for her and send to her account.
"Whenever there was a cash inflow of more than Five Hundred Thousand, I will keep a certain amount in my account, and forward the remaining to her account" he said.
Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia, allegedly received gratifications from a public servant and also unlawfully enriched herself by receiving huge sums of money into her Diamond Bank account without reasonable explanation. The Federal High Court Judge also gave false information to an officer of the EFCC that she was admitted at Gold Cross Hospital, Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi, Lagos which turned out to be untrue. Obla, SAN, was also alleged to have given the sum of Five Million Naira (N5, 000, 000. 00) to Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia in order to influence her official duties.

The matter was adjourned to January 9, 2017 for continuation of trial.

How are the mighty fallen!!! I remember appearing in this Lady's Court and she was acting like the Queen of all the Gods. She was just insulting lawyers left, right and centre. Well, it goes around, it comes around.

I know this woman is on trial and all, but mennn!! her demeanor is so classy. Like she is goals, so beautiful for her age, she should come and deposit that LV bag in my life. Meanwhile, Stella Oduah didn't go through all this and she stole government money and she's still in power. This Buhari corruption war get serious k-leg. Cos im sure Stella Oduah stole more than this woman. This looks like a witch hunt to be honest.
