Jonathan approves retirement of indicted judges

President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the compulsory retirement of Justice Gladys Olotu and Justice U.A. Inyang of Federal High Court and FCT High Court respectively.

Mr Mohammed Adoke, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, made the disclosure on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa in a news conference with State House correspondents.

It would be recalled that the two judges were last Wednesday suspended for gross misconduct by the National Judicial Council.

The Council, presided over by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Maryam Aloma-Mukhtar, had forwarded a recommendation for their compulsory retirement to the President.

Adoke said that the President approved the compulsory retirement of the judges based on the NJC recommendation.

He said the compulsory retirement took effect on Monday.
