Justice Ademola resigns as Federal High Court judge

Justice Ademola resigns as Federal High Court judge”

The Court of Appeal in Abuja in a judgment on Wednesday quashed the directive by former Chief Judge of the Federal High Court Abuja, Justice Ibrahim Auta, which re-assigned the trial of Lamido and others from Justice Ademola to Justice Babatunde Quadri of the same High Court in Abuja.

The FCT high court, however, ruled that the DSS could not prove beyond reasonable doubt it's allegation against the Federal High Court judge.

The Judge was said to have transmitted his letter of resignation to the National Judicial Council (NJC) late Wednesday evening after attending to several civil and criminal cases in his court for that day.

The judge did not state the reason for tendering his letter ahead of the anticipated date.

He was hence recalled by the National Judicial Council (NJC) after which he resumed sitting on June 7.

"This letter supersedes my previous notice of retirement from the Federal High Court of Nigeria, dated 25/09/2017".

He was consequently prosecuted but was discharged and acquitted by Justice Jude Okeke of the Federal Capital Territory High Court.

One of the officials told all lawyers whose cases were scheduled to come up on Thursday to return to the court next week for a new date.

Justice Ademola was among the eight judges, who were arrested and detained by the Nigeria's secret police, Department of State Services (DSS), following a raid in their homes on October 8, 2016.

He was subsequently prosecuted alongside his wife, Olubowale, ‎ and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria on gratification charges.
