SHAME: Former Chief Judge Of FCT Found Guilty Of Judicial Corruption

The National Judicial Council, NJC, at the end of its two-day crucial meeting in Abuja, yesterday, found the former Chief Judge of the Federal Capital Territory, Justice Hassan Gunmi, who had resigned to become an Emir in Zamfara State, guilty of judicial corruption.
In a statement yesterday, the council said it was satisfied that the ex-CJ perverted the course of justice in a case involving a company, Nestello Gateway Group, and the Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Abubakar Yari. 
Describing the conduct of Justice Gunmi pertaining to the case as “most unethical and highly reprehensible,” NJC said it decided not to take punitive measures against him considering that he had voluntarily bowed out of office.

 The council, however, warned that “henceforth, any similar misconduct by any judicial officer will be visited with severe sanctions.
