There seems to be no let or confusion over the position of Justice Adeniyi Ademola that all cases involving the Department of State Services (DSS) in his court be moved out as he would no longer hear them.

If there is any doubt, Ademola cleared it at his Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday, when he withdrew from yet another case involving the secret service, citing the likelihood of bias on the grounds that the agency has a case against him.

Recall that Ademola was one of the seven judges, detained by the DSS after a raid on some of their homes on October 8, in what it depicted as a “sting operation.”

NAN reports that Ademola, washed his hands of another matter between the DSS and one Haruna Abbas and two others, when it came out for mention, just as he did in the case of former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, saying it would not be fair for him to continue with it.

Insisting that the matter be returned to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta, for reassignment, he said: “The matter was here last on June 13, and it involves the DSS; I don’t want to handle any of its matters anymore.

“In the interest of fair hearing, I think I will move the file to another court because it will not be fair to me and to DSS.

“So, I will return the file to the chief judge to reassign.

“The case file is hereby returned to the chief judge for reassignment to another judge on personal grounds,” he said.

However, one of the accused, Abbas, prayed the judge not to withdraw from the case.

Abbas said that he and his co-accused would prefer to be tried by Ademola.
