Judge Refuses To Return Lamido’s Trial


An application by the former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido, seeking for the return of his trial to the former judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, has been dismissed by Justice Babatunde Quadri of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

Justice Quadri said it would better serve the interest of justice and public peace not to return the case to Justice Ademola.

Earlier the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta, had re-assigned the case to Justice Quadri when Justice Ademola was on suspension.

The EFCC, however, opposed the request insisting that Justice Ademola would likely be biased if the case was returned to him.
