NJC To Hold Emergency Meeting Over Arrest Of Judges – See When

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed has said the National Judicial Council (NJC) will hold emergency meeting on Tuesday to review the arrest of some judges.

The Department of State Service (DSS) on Saturday arrested two Justices of the Supreme Court and a number of Federal High Court judges on allegations of fraud.

Mohammed disclosed this when he delivered his address at the valedictory sitting in honour of Justice Suleman Galadima on Monday in Abuja.

“It is indeed very saddening and deeply regrettable, the distressing and unfortunate incident which occurred on Friday October 7 and Saturday, October 8.

However, I must ask all Nigerians to remain calm and prayerful, as an emergency meeting of the National Judicial Council, which will take place tomorrow, will comprehensively look into the matter

Furthermore, I must express my sincere appreciation to the executive of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) ably led by the President, Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN), and indeed, all members of the legal profession,’’ he said

The CJN said he was delighted by the prompt action and continued support of members of the legal profession.
