A top source from the Judiciary informed TheNigeriaLawyer, that the Hon. CJN has directed the Judicial Service Committee (JSC) of the FCT under the Chairmanship of the Acting Chief Judge, Hon. H. Y. Baba to immediately initiate disciplinary action against the Upper Area Court Judge who issued direct Criminal Summons against the Anambra State APGA Governorship Candidate Professor, Chukwuma Soludo over alleged serial abuse of office and breach of Code of Conduct for public officers when he was the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria between 29 May 2004 – 29 May 2009.

The Upper Area Court had some time on 23 August 2021 issued a direct Criminal Summons against Prof. Soludo over perjury, corruption and false assets declaration which is completely outside the jurisdiction of the Upper Area Court.

TheNigerialawyer recalls that Hon. Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed had met with the Chief Judges of FCT, Rivers, Kebbi, Cross Rivers, Jigawa, Anambra and Imo States on Monday 6 September 2021 and directed some of them to admonish the Judges in their jurisdictions on the danger of granting ex parte injunctions.

The acting Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory is expected to submit his findings to the CJN within 21 days.
