My arrest and trial about revenge – Justice Adeniyi Ademola

Justice Adeniyi Ademola, one of the judges arrested by the Department of State Security Services (DSS) and about to face trial over alleged crime, has said his ordeal was an act of retribution by Attorney-General of the Federation/ Justice Minister Abubakar Malami (SAN).

Justice Ademola stated this in his report to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed in which he appealed to the CJN to grant him leave to enable him pursue justice over alleged infringement of his fundamental human right by the DSS.

The report reads in part: “What is more intriguing in this whole episode, is that I see it as a vendetta/revenge from the Hon. Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN) whilst I was in Kano between 2004 and 2008.

As a Federal High Court Judge, he was involved in a professional misconduct necessitating his arrest and detention by my order. However, with the intervention of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Kano branch, the allegation of misconduct was later withdrawn by me.

“Consequently, the National Judicial Council ( NJC) referred Abubakar Malami (SAN) to the NBA Disciplinary Committee for disciplinary action. It was as a result of this he was denied the rank of SAN by the Legal Practitioners Privileges Committee for a period of four years until when he produced a fake letter of apology, purportedly addressed to me.

“It was then he was conferred with the rank. Since the above incident, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has threatened to revenge, and swore to do anything to bring me down.”
