One of the judges recently arrested by the Department of State Service (DSS) Justice Adeniyi Ademola has again withdrawn from handling a case of terrorism filed by the secret police
Justice Ademola said at the mentioning of the case that it would not be fair for him to continue with the case and announced the return of the case file to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta for reassignment. “The matter was here last on June 13, and it involves the DSS; I don’t want to handle any of its matters anymore. “In the interest of fair hearing, I think I will move the file to another court because it will not be fair to me and to DSS.
“The case file is hereby returned to the chief judge for reassignment to another judge on personal grounds,” he said. But one of the accused Abbas prayed the judge not to withdraw from the case, saying that he and his co-accused would prefer to be tried by Justice Ademola. This is the second DSS case that Ademola is dumping in less than 10 days. Earlier on October 18, Ademola had withdrawn from a case brought against a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, also by the DSS.
