Two judges have been recommended for immediate and compulsory retirement by the National Judicial Council (NJC) for acts of misconduct.
The recommendation was made known in a statement on Friday by NJC’s spokesman, Soji Oye.
The Commission identified the affected judicial officers as Aliyu Musa Liman (of the Bauchi State High Court) and Chukwuma Francis Abosi (the Acting President of the Customary Court of Appeal, Imo State).
Liman was said to have withheld judgment in a case, marked: BA/100/210 between Abubakar Isa and Sheik Tahir Usman Bauchi, for almost four years, as against the three months period provided by the Constitution.
While Abosi was said to have altered his date of birth from 1950 to 1958 to beat his actual retirement year of 2015 when he originally attained the mandatory retirement age of 65 years.
