Nigerian Judges Suspended On Allegations Of Corruption Have Been Recalled

The National Judicial Council has recalled a Federal High Court judge, Adeniyi Ademola, who was suspended alongside seven other judges following allegations of corruption brought against them by the federal government.

In a statement Saturday, the council said Mr. Ademola was recalled alongside five other judges.

Mr. Ademola and seven other judges were suspended in November 2016 after a raid on their homes by the State Security Service.

Three of the affected judges were charged to court, but only Mr. Ademola’s case has so far been concluded. The judge was acquitted of corruption charges.

The other recalled judges are: John Inyang Okoro of the Supreme Court, Uwani Aji of the Court of Appeal; Hydiazira Nganjiwa of the Federal High Court; Musa H. Kurya of the Federal High Court; and Agbadu James Fishim of National Industrial Court of Nigeria.

They are to resume duties June 7, Wednesday

The decisions were taken at the NJC’s 82nd meeting held on May 31 and June 1-
