NJC backtracks, to probe corruption claims against judges
The National Judicial Council (NJC) is finally bowing to pressure to investigate complaints of corruption against some judges.
The Chief Justice of Nigeria and Chairman National Judicial Council, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, says he would forward recommendations on the investigation to appropriate authorities.
The CJN further said when the investigations are completed, appropriate recommendations would be made to the President or Governors who would have the final say on the affected judicial officers.
The NJC had recommended the dismissal or retirement of some affected Judicial Officers found culpable by an earlier investigation to the President and respective Governors as provided under the Constitution.
