NJC, suspends Justice Gbaja-Biamila & Justice Idris Evuti




The National Judicial Council (NJC) has recommended two judges for compulsory retirement with immediate effect.




‎Pending the time the Lagos State Governor will act on the recommendation, the council has suspended one of them, Gbaja-Biamila, from office with immediate effect in the interim and in exercise of its power under Paragraph 21 Sub-Paragraph (d) of the Third Schedule of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended.

A statement issued by the council and signed by its Acting Director of Information, Mr Soji Oye, gave the names of the judges as Hon. Justice O. Gbaja-Biamila of Lagos State High Court and Hon. Justice Idris M. J. Evuti of the Niger State High Court.

While Gbaja-Biamila was recommended for retirement for refusing to deliver judgment within the time allowed by the constitution, Justice Evuti was compulsorily retired for falsifying his age.

Oye said the council took the decision at its meeting which was held on 13th and 14th April, 2016
The statement said:  “Gbaja-Biamila was recommended to the Governor of Lagos State for compulsory retirement from office  pursuant to the findings by the council on the allegations contained in the Petitions written against His Lordship by C. A. Candide Johnson, SAN.
