08 December, 2017, 08:57 | Author: Wade Massey
Justice Adeniyi Ademola, acquitted of corruption charges, on Thursday tendered his letter of voluntary retirement from the Federal High Court bench.
The judge was due for statutory retirement in March 2018, but he suddenly turned in his letter of voluntary retirement dated December 6, 2017.
But it was learnt that the National Judicial Council did not act on his previous letter of notice of retirement dated September 25, 2017.
The letter, which was routed through the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Justice Adamu Abdul Kafarati reads, "I hereby voluntarily retire from the Bench of the Federal High Court of Nigeria with effect from 6th December 2017".
Clarke said, "Justice Ademola who was approaching the voluntary retirement age, resigned moment he was absolved of any wrong doings by the court".
In its notice of appeal dated August 14, NJC argued that Justice Tsoho erred in law when he barred it from inviting Justice Ademola to answer to allegations contained in a petition that was lodged against him.
