Prosecutor in Trial of Nigerian Supreme Court Judge Steps Down


Reports circulating online reveal the prosecutor in charge of the law suit slammed on a supreme court judge over allegation of corruption has withdrawn.
 
Justice Nwali Ngwuta
 
Adeogun Phillips, the prosecution counsel in a federal lawsuit against a Supreme Court Judge, Nwali Ngwuta, who is accused of corruption, has stepped down from the case.
 
Mr. Phillips withdrew from the case at the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday, the News Agency Nigeria reports.
 
Reasons for the decision were not immediately clear.
 
Justice Ngwuta and six others are currently suspended from work by the National Judicial Council (NJC) after the DSS raided their homes over allegations of corruption levelled against them.
 
The investigation into the allegations culminated in the execution of a search warrant on Ngwuta’s official residence on October 8, 2016.
 
In the charge filed before the Federal High Court, Abuja, by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (OAGF), Justice Ngwuta was alleged to have had in his possession, the sums of N35, 358, 000.00 (N35.3 million), $319,596.00, £25,915.00 and EURO 280.00 all of which, according to the prosecutors, are part of the proceeds of unlawful acts contrary to the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act 2011 (as amended).
 
The accused was also alleged to have obtained multiple passports contrary to Section 10 of the Immigration Act 2015 and punishable under the same Section. The search, according to the prosecutors, revealed four diplomatic passports (two of them valid), one official and two standard Nigerian passports, all in the name of the defendant.
 
He was also alleged to have made false statements to the passport office concerning his date of birth for the purpose of procuring an additional diplomatic passport for himself.
