The National Judicial Council has recommended the sack from office of three judges.

They are the presiding justice of the Court of Appeal, Ilorin Division, Justice Mohammed Ladan Tsamiya, and Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice I. A. Umezulike and Justice Kabiru M. Auta of the High Court of Justice, Kano State.

In the case of Justice Auta, the NJC recommended his dismissal from service with immediate effect and to be handed over to the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 1, Kano, for prosecution.

According to a statement by the NJC, the decision on the judges stemmed from allegations made against them bordering on corruption and abuse of judicial powers.

While it awaits the outcome of its recommendations from the Office of the President, and those of governors of Enugu and Kano states, the NJC states that the three judges have been suspended from their offices. (Channels TV)
