11 judges of various divisions of the Federal High Court have been redeployed.
Among those affected is Justice Okon Abang of the Abuja Division, who has handled several controversial cases. Justice Mohammed Liman of the Port Harcourt Division, who was among the judges to be picked up by the Department of State Services in October last year, was also affected.
Justice Liman was redeployed from Port Harcourt to Enugu Division while Justice Abang was moved from Abuja to Asaba Division in Delta State.
They are expected to resume in their new divisions by January the 30th. They will continue with the hearing of criminal cases currently before them.
