An operative of the Department of State Service, Mr Umar Ahmed has at an FCT High Court, Maitama, tendered N54million and other items recovered from the residence of Justice Adeniyi Ademola.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola, his wife Olabowale and Mr Joe Agi (SAN) are standing trial on a 18-count charge bordering on criminal conspiracy to receive gratification in various ways contrary to Section 8(1)(a) of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000.
Justice Ademola was among the seven justices investigated on after the sting operations carried out on October 8 and 9 by men of the DSS.
The items tendered by Ahmed, the exhibit keeper with DSS who was the 11th witness, included 121, 279 US dollars, 400, 400 euros, 110 Indian Rupees and 80 pounds.

Two more charges were added, bringing the charges to 18 counts.
