A disgraced former federal judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumobogia slumped in court Friday just before the commencement of proceedings in the alleged graft suit preferred against her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, at the Lagos High Court.

The corrupt former judge, who was dismissed from the bench by the NJC this October for gross misconduct, was rushed to a local hospital in an ambulance forcing Justice Hakeem Oshodi to adjourn the matter, following a request by her lead counsel, Mr. Robert Clarke, SAN.

Ofili-Ajumogobia is standing trial alongside Mr. Godwin Obla, SAN on 31 counts bordering on corruption and 2 counts bordering on perverting of justice.
