DSS vs Judges: Justice Ademola withdraws from presiding over Dasuki's trial
The embattled Federal High Court Judge in Abuja, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who was among justices recently arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, over an alleged corruption, has withdrawn from the trial of embattled former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd).
Ademola announced his decision to withdraw from the trial before the court on Tuesday, hinging the reason for his action on the allegations of corruption leveled against him by the DSS, which is the prosecution in the case.
It could be recalled that the secret police had on October 7 raided Ademola's house, and arrested him, claiming that huge sums of money both in local and foreign currencies were found in his house.
However, the judge had written to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, seeking a leave to sue the DSS over what his claim that he was being harassed and intimidated by the DSS for granting bail to Dasuki and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
