Politics Justice Okon Abang, 10 Others Redeployed by Federal High Court



The federal high court has redeployed prominent judge, Justice Okon Abang, Justice Mohammed Liman and 10 other justices.

Justice Liman had been moved to Enugu division, while Justice Abang is transferred to Asaba division.

Justice Liman gave the judgment that accentuated the leadership crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), when he recognised the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee as the authentic body to run the affairs of the party.

Justice Abang gave the judgment which sacked Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu last year. The appellate court reversed the decision.

Justice Abang also gave the judgment on which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) based his decision to substitute Eyitayo Jegede with Jimoh Ibrahim as the candidate of the PDP during last February’s governorship election in Ondo State.
