The mission of the policemen at the Haile Selassie Street residence of the President of the Court of Appeal, whose suspension has been greeted with outrage and condemnation across the country, was not known at the time of writing this report.

 

Our correspondents sighted the pick-up load of policemen at the judge’s official residence at about 4pm.

 

In spite of the controversial and unconstitutional suspension of Justice Salami by the National Judicial Council, President Goodluck Jonathan went ahead to appoint Justice Dalhatu Adamu as president of the Court of Appeal.
