Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia slumps in court
A dismissed former Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, yesterday, slumped in court shortly just before the start of proceedings in the alleged graft charges filed against her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the Lagos High Court.
It gathered that Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia, who was dismissed from the bench by the National Judicial Commission (NJC) in October this year for gross misconduct, was rushed to a local hospital in an ambulance, forcing Justice Hakeem Oshodi to adjourn the matter, following a request by her lead counsel, Mr. Robert Clarke (SAN).
The former Judge is standing trial alongside Mr. Godwin Obla (SAN) on 31-count charge bordering on corruption and two counts bordering on perversion of justice.
