Browsing: Justice Inyang Ekwo

Justice Inyang Ekwo gave the warning after Dr. Hassan Liman, counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in the alleged N5 billion trial against Oduah and eight others, told the court that the former minister and one other defendant were not in court to take their plea.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, who gave the order while delivering a judgment in the suit brought by the CJ against Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, and others, described the move to probe the embattled judge as “unconstitutional and illegal.”

Justice Akeredolu made the allegation in a suit she filed before the Federal High Court Abuja in respect of which the court has restrained Akeredolu and other defendants in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/2016/2021 from taking any further steps that could hurt the plaintiff’s interest.
