Borno Chief Judge reads riot act to judicial officers


Borno State Chief Judge, Justice Kashim Zannah has read the riot act to judges and judicial officers saying anyone found wanting or indulging in corrupt practices would be sacked.

Zannah gave the warning while addressing participants at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Town Hall meeting on corruption held in Maiduguri.

His words: “If you are found in corrupt practices and it is established, we are not going to demote or transfer you, but send you packing. Transferring a corrupt Judge or judicial officer means you are reassigning corruption to other institutions or Local Government Areas.”

The Chief Judge called on people of the state to report any corrupt judge or judicial officer to his office and the Public Complaints Committee (PCC).

Speaking at the event, Bauchi State Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Dr. Aminu Gamawa, said corruption exists in the education, political, health and
judiciary institutions.

“While fighting corruption, we have to involve our families and all other stakeholders. Not only at Federal, State and Local Government levels, but in
communities and private sector,” he said.

Borno State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Kaka Shehu Lawan said the meeting will go a long way in addressing corruption in the state and the nation.
