EFCC accuses judge of money laundering

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has uncovered a financial transaction amounting to N18m by Justice Rita Ngozi Ofili-Ajumogobia, one of the six judges under investigation. 
Daily Trust gathered yesterday that the N18 million was wired to a foreign account from the judge’s domiciliary account for the purchase of a property in the United Kingdom.
EFCC sources said Ajumogbobia owned up to the money but claimed it was a loan obtained from a family friend.  “The ‘family friend’, who is chairman of an oil and gas company, has been invited by the EFCC for questioning,” the source said. 

It added that: “So far, he had told operatives that the money was an assistance he rendered to her.” 

The EFCC source said: “Inquiry into the loan facility as claimed by both of them showed no formal agreement or documentation as to how and when the repayment would be made.”
