Alleged corruption: Female judge risks arrest for shunning EFCC’s invitation

By Soni Daniel, Northern Region Editor

There were indications Tuesday night that a judge of the Federal High court might be arrested for allegedly shunning an invitation to appear before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to be questioned on alleged corrupt practices in the discharge of her duties.

A competent source close to the development, said that the commission was left with no option than to look for the female judge after she deliberately refused to appear before its operatives to be interviewed on allegations of corruption levelled against her.

Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, a judge of the Federal High Court Lagos, it was learnt, was invited along with her male counterpart, Justice Musa Haruna Kurya to report to the EFCC Office in Lagos on Tuesday for interrogation but she spurned the agency’s invite and did not give any reasons for her action either.
