The EFCC filed an 18-count charge against her. It follows her arrest after the Lagos State High Court in Ikeja struck out a previous charge against her on Tuesday for lack of jurisdiction. Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia will be brought to court from EFCC’s custody, it was learnt. A former EFCC prosecutor Mr Godwin Obla (SAN) is the second defendant in the charge numbered FHC/139C/19. EFCC said they conspired 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 unlawful act to wit: unlawful enrichment”. The alleged offence is contrary sections 15 (2) (a) and 18 (a) of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act, 2011 and punishable under Section 15 (3). 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.]]>
