Judge Abang who issued controversial sentence in PDP leadership tussle moved to Asaba

The judge in the PDP leadership case that gave controversial ruling that igniting national debate has been removed from Abuja divisional court and redeployed to Asaba. 

 

Justice Okon Abang has in the last couple of months acquired a reputation for his controversial rulings that have raised eyebrows and reinforced the perception of rascality in the Nigerian judiciary.

Other than his controversial ruling on the Okezie Ikpeazu vs. Samson Ogah case, he has granted a series of orders that have added to the confusion over the leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Some detainees of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have also fingered him as one of the to-go-to judges who readily grants long detention orders to the commission during its investigation of high profile corruption cases.

No fewer than 11 judges were redeployed to various divisions, according to a circular by Ibrahim Auta, chief judge of the federal high court. 

Affected judges are expected to assume work at their new divisions by January 30, 2017.
