The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has uncovered how Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia got  N18 million from an oil company boss to buy a house in London.

Justice Ajumogobia, who turned herself in to the EFCC for questioning last week, admitted to receiving the amount but claimed it was a soft loan from a 'family friend' who is the Managing Director of a leading oil and gas company, Vanguard reports.

She reportedly got the money while still serving as a Federal High Court judge.

The newspaper cited a top source who said that the money was wired to a foreign account from the judge's domiciliary account for the purchase of a property in the UK.

According to report, there was no paperwork indicating that Justice Ajumogobia got the N18 million as a loan.
