Justice Chuka Obiozor withdraws from NBA president’s (Mr Paul Usoro SAN) criminal trial on N1.4bn fraud charges. Justice Obiozor said this in a ruling yesterday.
Justice Chuka Obiozor said he was withdrawing himself from the case “for personal reasons.”
“For personal reasons, I hereby disqualify myself from handling the case personal reasons,” Mr Obiozor said on Thursday.
“I hereby return this file back to the chief judge of the Federal high court for reassignment.”
Meanwhile, he was the second judge to withdraw from the case, after the original judge, Justice Muslim Hassan, withdrew at the request of Usoro’s legal team, led by Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), a former NBA President.
