The National Judicial Council (NJC) on Thursday recommended the dismissal of two judges to president Muhammadu Buhari over misconduct and money-laundering.
The judges are Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court and Justice James Agbadu-Fishim of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria.
NJC said both judges had petitioned against them from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for alleged malpractice.
“The National Judicial Council under the chairmanship of the Honourable Mr. Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen, GCON, at its 87th meeting which was held on 3rd October 2018, recommended the removal by dismissal from office, of Hon. Mr. Justice R. N. Ofili-Ajumogobia of the federal high court and Hon. Mr. Justice James T. Agbadu-Fishim of the national industrial court of Nigeria,” NJC said in a statement by its spokesman Soji Oye.
