National Judicial Council, NJC Recommend Dismissal of Two Judges

The National Judicial Council (NJC) has recommended the dismal of two judges having found them guilty of misconduct.

The judges are Justices Rita N. Ofili-Ajumogobia (of the Federal High Court) and James T. Agbadu-Fishim (of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria).

The NJC directed their immediate suspension pending when President Muhammadu Buhari would act on its recommendation.

Rising from its 87th meeting held on Wednesday, the NJC also directed Justice Joshua E. Ikede of the Delta State High Court to refund what he earned as salary and other entitlements since October 2016.

The NJC said it found that Justice Ikede altered his age.

It rejected the retirement letter sent to it on October 1 this year by the judge.
