Listen to article

Controversial Abuja Federal High Court Judge, Justice Okon Abang has

been accused by some youths in the northern part of Nigeria of

receiving over N2 billion as bribe from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP

senator from Ogun State, Prince Buruji Kashamu, in the last two years.

The youths, Northern Youths Movement (NYM) said in a release signed by

its Chairman, Mallam Ishaya Jato on Tuesday that Senator Buruji

Kashamu has now attained so much notoriety that he is widely regarded

as a Consultant on any matter involving the Federal High Court.

The NYM said Nigerians should ask the Federal High Court President,

Justice Ibrahim Auta, why all cases involving Senator Buruji in Abuja

are always allocated to Justice Abang while those in Lagos are

allocated to Justice Ibrahim Buba.
The group alleged that Justice Abang has turned the court to where

justice can be procured the moment the right price is paid and that he

(Abang) must have received not less than N2 billion from Senator

Kashamu for controversial orders on PDP matters and the judgment on

Abia State governorship tussle that was set aside with ignominy my the

Appeal Court.
The youths said between 2011 and 2012, Justice Abang while in the

Federal High Court in Lagos handled suit numbers; FHC/L/CS/282/12 and

FHC/L/CS/347/2012 and was reassigned suit numbers FHC/L/CS/1248/2011,

FHC/L/CS/347/2012 and FHC/L/CS/535/2012 and in the last six months,

all cases involving Buruji Kashamu on the PDP are either assigned to

Justice Abang or Justice Ibrahim Buba.
They said Justice Charles Archibong of the Federal High Court in

Lagos, used to be Senator Buruji's special judge until he was

dismissed on account of one of the Buruji Kashamu cases on Ogun State

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) (among several other reasons). It is on

record that Justice Charles Archibong must have given not less than 20

Orders of injunction, Committal to prison e.t.c. for Buruji Kashamu,

with most of the judgments not than two paragraphs.

The mantle to do Buruji Kashamu's bidding as paid, fell on Justice

Abang when Justice Archibong was dismissed. Justice Abang must have

granted not less than 20 Orders for Buruji Kashamu who pays per Order.

It was Justice Abang while in the Federal High court, Lagos that

granted order barring the Nigeria Police, the National Drug Law

Enforcement Agency, the State Security Service, and the Nigerian

Customs Service from arresting and extraditing Senator Kashamu to the

United for trial over drug related offences.
Senator Buruji's other judge; Ibrahim Buba of a Federal High Court in

Lagos was the one who ordered personnel of the NDLEA out of Kashamu's

The youths called on the National Judicial Council (NJC) to give

special attention to the handling of cases involving Senator Kashamu

and any other cases being handled by Barrister Ajibola Oluyede, who is

the head of “Senator Buruji Kashamu's law chamber.”
