NJC begins probe of 7 judges

THE National Judicial Council (NJC) has commenced the probe of seven judges for alleged misconduct and corruption.

Nigerian Tribune has exclusively obtained their names.

They are Justices I.A Kasali, M.A Savage and D.O Oluwayemi of the Lagos High Court.

Others are Justices V.N Agbata of High Court, Anambra, U. Ononogbo of High Court Abia, Nnamdi Dimgba of Federal High Court and Umar Nasir Gumi of High Court, Zamfara.

Probe panels have been set up by the council to handle each of the cases.

The judges, who would soon get their summons, were listed for probe after preliminary investigation confirmed a prima facie case against them, while the panels will begin sittings in about a fortnight.
