Two Judges Sacked by National Judicial Council

Two judges, Justice Mohammed Yunusa of the Federal High Court, Lagos Division, and Justice Olamide Oloyede of the High Court of Justice, Osun State, have been relieved of their job by the National Judicial Council over alleged misconduct.

Their sack followed a meeting by the NJC on Saturday, which recommended the compulsory retirement of the two judges to President Muhammadu Buhari.

A statement by the NJC explains that its “hammer came on Mr. Yunusa for allegedly issuing illegal court orders blocking investigation by government agencies into alleged financial misappropriation by some public officers”.
