An official of Diamond Bank Plc, Ademola Oshodi, told a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja on Monday that he managed the bank account of Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia numbered 0032091183 domiciled in the bank.
Oshodi told the court that he regularly visited Ofiili-Ajumogobia’s chamber on the premises of the Federal High Court on Oyinkan Abayomi Drive, Ikoyi, Lagos, to collect huge cash sums for onward deposit into the judge’s account.
The banker also stated that whenever the money was above the lawful threshold that could be deposited into the judge’s account, he split it into two, deposited a portion into Ofili-Ajumogobia’s account and the remaining portion into his own personal account.
He explained that he would subsequently transfer the money from his personal account into the judge’s account.
He added that, at a time, he had to help the judge get a Bureau de Change operator named, Abah Said, who helped her to convert naira into US dollars whenever the judge was not comfortable with the normal mode of transaction.
Oshodi said this on Monday when he appeared as a prosecution witness before Justice Hakeem Oshodi of a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja, where Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia was arraigned alongside Chief Godwin Obla (SAN) for alleged bribery and unlawful enrichment.
