Busted: Female Judge Ofili-Ajumogobia in Fake Hospital Saga to escape EFCC

A Federal High Court judge, Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, has been busted by detectives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in a hospital admission racket in Lagos. 

Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia on Wednesday told EFC officials by phone that she was on admission in a Lagos hospital in Ikoyi, as an excuse why she could not respond to the anti-graft agency’s invitation for interrogation in the last two days.
Curiously, Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia, claim she was admitted into the "intensive care unit" of Golden Cross Hospital on Bourdillon Road in Ikoy. Funny enough, an attempt by EFCC agents to pay her a “courtesy call” shows that she had not been to the hospital since October 13, 2016.

Five other judges, Mohammed Nasir Yunusa, Hyeladzira Ajiya Nganjiwa, Uwani Abba-Aji, Justice Agbadu James Fishim and Musa Haruna Kurya had responded to EFCC invitations. 

Some of the judges were accompanied by their lawyers and were reported to be cooperating with EFCC operatives investigating alleged corruption in Nigeria's judiciary.

EFCC detectives, however, found that a medical staff of the hospital was trying to insert the name of Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia into their records as their patient.

When they could not find her in the hospital they called her on her mobile phone to ask where she was; she restated that she was in the intensive care unit. She cut off the call as soon as EFCC officials told her they have searched the private hospital and couldn’t find her.

According to SR, EFCC officials said the medical director of the hospital has been invited to the anti-graft agency's office in Ikoyi to explain his role in the saga.
