Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who was recalled by the National Judicial Council (NJC) last week, resumed sitting at Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday.

He commenced sitting at 9:30 a.m. and seven cases were listed for Wednesday’s court session.

Justice Ademola was among the six judges recalled by the NJC after their suspension for alleged corruption last year.

Other recalled judges are – Justice John Inyang Okoro (Supreme Court), Justice Uwani Abba Aji (Court of Appeal), Justice Hydiazira A. Nganjiwa  (Federal High Court), Justice Musa H. Kurya (Federal High Court) and Justice Agbadu James Fishim  (National Industrial Court of Nigeria).

One of the early callers in Justice Ademola’s court was Joe Agi (SAN), whose case was taken first.

Agi was arraigned alongside Justice Ademola and his wife for alleged corruption by the Department of State Service (DSS).

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria was arraigned for giving N30million gratification to the judge and other corruption related charges.

The judge that handled the case, Justice Jude Okeke freed the defendants because the prosecution failed to prove its case against them.
