NJC panel to grill Justice Okon Abang in Sept.

Following recent conflicting rulings over the governorship tussle in Abia State and the leadership crises rocking the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, by Justice Okon Abang of the federal High Court Abuja, the National Judicial Council, NJC, has commenced discreet investigations on the judge.

Justice Abang is to face an NJC panel September. A highly placed Judiciary source at the weekend told Nigerian Pilot Sunday that some chieftain of the leading opposition party, PDP, have petitioned the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Mahmud Mohammed and the NJC over alleged misconduct and abuse of office by Justice Abang.

According to the source, the NJC has already commenced secret investigation following the controversy in the botched convention of the PDP and the ruling that led to the sacking of Abia governor ,Okezie Ikpeazu, who was restored by the Appeal Court Thursday last week.

The source further added that the NJC in its September meeting will constitute a full blown panel that will grill the embattled controversial judge.
