UPDATED: Justice Ademola Step Down As Federal High Court Judge
Justice Adeniyi Ademola has tendered his letter of voluntary retirement from the bench of the Federal High Court.
The justice tendered his resignation letter to the National Judicial Council (NJC) this morning.
Although his one-paragraph letter was received at the Office of the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, on December 7 (Thursday), the letter stated that his retirement took effect from December 6 (Wednesday).
The letter did not disclose the reason for the judge’s decision.
He was hence recalled by the National Judicial Council (NJC) after which he resumed sitting on June 7.
Justice Ademola is yet to state reasons for his retirement.
