NJC recommends compulsory retirement of Taraba Chief Judge, others face probe

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


The NJC’s Director, Information, Soji Oye, in a statement noted that the recommendation came after its 101st Meeting of March 16, 2023 held under the Chairmanship of Justice Kayode Ariwoola.


Justice Andetur was said to have been recommended for compulsory retirement, following the findings of an investigation committee to a petition written against him by Senator Muhammed Sanusi Dagash.


The chief judge was accused of suppressing judgement by failing to deliver judgement in a Suit involving Mallam Kassim Yahaya Ahmad Vs Shittu Wurmo and Shuwari Farms Limited 30 months after adoption of final addresses by the parties.
