SHOCKER! Nigerian Judge, Margaret Igbeta, Opened N870 Million Bank Account In Maid's Name -ICPC

 Nigerian Judge, Margaret Igbeta, Opened N870 Million Bank Account In Maid's Name -ICPC
Nigeria's anti-corruption agency - ICPC- is requesting the Abuja
federal high court to order the forfeiture of N840 million which it traced to Mrs. Margaret Igbeta, a retired President of the Benue State Customary Court of Appeal.

The commission, in an ex parte motion, said the order will prevent her from accessing the money believed to be fraudulently acquired in the course of her official duties.


The ICPC accused her of operating a proxy fixed deposit account in the name of her maid, Theodora Atsu, with Ecobank Plc, where she accumulated N870,321,492.15 between 2008 and 2019.

She was said to have opened the account with her passport and the name of Atsu on the 5 March 2008, with an initial deposit of N8 million.


She subsequently made several other deposits including N123,745, 925.57 and N5 million, in the months of March and May 2008.


The ICPC also noted that the money was far above her legitimate earnings both as a judge and the president of the customary court of appeal within the period that the account was operated.
