The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has arrested a dismissed Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia.
Her arrest took place on the premises of the Lagos High Court, Ikeja shortly after Justice Hakeem Oshodi struck out the corruption charges against her by the EFCC.
As she attempted to leave the Courtroom, EFCC officials moved to surround the dismissed Judge.
Upon sighting them, 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.
Justice Oshodi, when notified about the development, said there was nothing he could do, as the file had been closed.
