NUJ seeks maximum security for Journalists during Saturday Poll

Written by on March 17, 2023

The National Judicial Council (NJC) today recommended the compulsory retirement of the Chief Judge of Taraba State High Court, Justice F. B. Andetur with immediate effect.

Justice Andetur was recommended for compulsory retirement following his indictment in a petition written against him by Senator Muhammed Sanusi Dagash.

Senator Dagash had in the petition accused the embattled Chief Judge of suppressing judgment by failing to deliver judgment involving Mallam Kassim Yahaya Ahmad versus Shittu Wurmo & Shuwari Farms Limited.

Though, the law stipulates three months to deliver judgment after the adoption of final addresses, Justice Andetur was said to have suppressed the judgment delivery for 30 months after the adoption of final addresses by the parties.

In the interim, the Council in the exercise of its disciplinary powers under the Constitution has suspended Justice Andetur from office pending his compulsory retirement.
