NJC Reinstates Ekiti Judge After Suspension For 16 Years

The National Judicial Council (NJC) has reinstated Justice Babajide Aladejana of Ekiti State High Court as a judge after a 16- -year suspension.

Aladejana was suspended from office in 2006 with the former Chief Judge, Justice Kayode Bamisile under the  administration of the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Alfa Belgore.

The duo was suspended for their alleged roles in the political crisis that led to the impeachment of the former Governor Ayodele Fayose in October 16, 2006 over alleged N1.4bn poultry scandal, abuse of office and illegal operation of a foreign account.
