Chief Justice of Nigeria to Investigate Controversial Judge

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Alooma Mukhtar, has promised that the National Judicial Council (NJC) look into the controversy surrounding the questionable judgement delivered by Justice Abubakar Talba of the Abuja High Court in the conviction of a self-confessed pension thief, Yakubu Yusufu.

The CJN made the pledge through the chief registrar of the Supreme Court, Mr. Sunday Olorundahunsi, when two groups, the Anti-Corruption Network and the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), led a protest march to the Supreme Court in Abuja yesterday.
The CJN said that there was the need ‘to take appropriate action’ on the matter in order to reassure the public that the judiciary remained the last hope of the common man. The protest letter of the groups was accepted by Olorundahunsi behalf of the CJN.
