EFCC Arrests Female High Court Registrar Notorious for Matching Senior Lawyers With Corrupt Judges

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

A female High Court Registrar has landed in serious trouble with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over corruption charges.


Helen Ogunleye, a registrar at the Federal High Court in Lagos has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to SaharaReporters, the woman who is said to have a record of pairing up senior lawyers with corrupt judges to pervert justice, was arrested last Thursday.

Sources revealed that she was detained overnight before being granted bail on Friday.



SaharaReporters reports that it was further learned that forensic investigations of some of the high-profile lawyers undergoing prosecution by the agency show that Mrs. Ogunleye has also been a conduit for transferring cash from the lawyers to some of the corrupt judges.

Some sources gave the example of an analysis of telephone calls from Joe Nwobike, a senior lawyer recently arrested by the EFCC, which showed that Mrs. Ogunleye had previously helped pair him with a federal high court judge who is now serving in the Jos Division.

Several text messages between her and some judges also show that she had perfected a way to funnel bribes to them.

Mrs. Ogunleye is said to be cooperating with EFCC investigators.
