Gov. Bello walks out Kogi chief judge from Government House

The faceoff between the Kogi governor, Yahaya Bello, and the state’s chief judge, Justice Nasir Ajanah, continued on Tuesday as the judge was walked out of a function at the Government House in Lokoja.

According to reports:

  • Ajanah was officially invited to the swearing-in of the new Grand Khadi of the state by the protocol officer of the Government House.
  • He arrived promptly and was seated alongside other government officials before the governor’s arrival.
  • Minutes before Gov. Bello arrived however, his chief security officer allegedly approached Ajanah, informing him that the governor directed that he shouldn’t be allowed to attend the event.
  • The chief justice consequently left the Government House.

Bottomline: So far, Gov. Bello’s attempt to remove the chief judge has failed. Unless he gets his way, temper tantrums like this are expected.
