An unconfirmed report suggests that Justice Rita Ofili-Ajimogobia has been hospitalised, as the woman due to be re-arraigned in a Lagos High Court on Friday 31 May 2019 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) on money laundering allegations was said to be admitted in the Hospital.
Justice Rita who was re-arraigned by EFCC on the 19th of April alongside Godwin Obla who is still at large, for allegedly conspiring on May 21, 2014, to indirectly conceal N5million in the Diamond Bank account of Nigel & Colive Ltd, which they “reasonably ought to have known forms part of proceeds of an unlawful act to wit: unlawful enrichment”, has been adjourned, as she could not make it to the court.
The alleged offence allegedly committed by Justice Rita, according to EFCC, is contrary sections 15 (2) (a) and 18 (a) of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act, 2011 and punishable under Section 15 (3).
Justice Rita Ajumogobia was also accused of indirectly concealing N12million in the same account.
EFCC, in another count, said she made a false statement to an officer that the money was payment for a property sale.
No official statement from EFCC to confirm this latest development on the case of Justice Rita…more to come…
