Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday re-arrested a former Federal High Court Judge, Justice Rita Ofili Ajumogobia, after an Ikeja High Court struck out a 30 count charge bordering on corruption against her.
Ajumogobia’s relief was however temporary, as the operatives numbering about fifteen laid seige for the former Judge in the court premises after she stepped out shortly when the charge was dismissed.
Ajumogobia who wore a leg cast on her right leg, had proceeded out of the court but fled back upstairs into the court when she saw armed operarives of the commission who were waiting to arrest her.
The embattled judge however notified the court of her impending arrest but Justice Oshodi said that there was nothing he could do anymore, as the case file had immediately been closed
The operatives who had waited until the court rose, arrested Ajumogobia immediately she stepped out and she was escorted into a waiting white Hilux van.
Ajumogobia has since been dismissed as a judge on the orders of the National Judicial Commission.
