AFTER 16 years of suspension, the National Judicial Council (NJC) has reinstated Justice Babajide Aladejana of an Ekiti State High Court.
The lift of his suspension reportedly followed the review of the NJC.
Stonix News reports that Aladejana was suspended from office in 2006 with the state’s former Chief Judge, Justice Kayode Bamisile, under the administration of the former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Alfa Belgore.
The duo were suspended for their alleged roles in the political crisis that led to the impeachment of the former governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose on October 16, 2006, over an alleged N1.4 billion poultry scandal, abuse of office and illegal operation of a foreign account.
Meanwhile, it was gathered that Aladejana has officially resumed work on Tuesday.
He was subsequently allocated High Court Number Two where he will be hearing cases and performing other judicial functions
