Judges of the Federal High Court in Abuja shunned cases involving former Chief of General Staff, Alex Badeh, ex-governor, Ikedi Ohakim on Monday, October 10, 2016.

According to a report by Nation Newspapers, the judges refused to attend to cases in court as they show solidarity with Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS).

While Ohakim is being tried before Justice Ademola on a three-count charge of money laundering and false asset declaration, Badeh and a company, Iyalikam Nigeria Limited are being tried before Justice Okon Abang for allegedly diverting about N1.4billion belonging to the Nigerian Air Force.
