Justice Adeniyi Ademola on Thursday tendered his letter of voluntary retirement from the bench of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The judge was due for his statutory retirement in March, 2018, but he suddenly turned in his letter of voluntary retirement dated Dec. 6, 2017.

Although his one-paragraph letter was submitted to the Office of the Acting Chief Judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, on Thursday, the letter stated that his retirement took effect from Wednesday.

The judge did not state the reason for tendering his letter ahead of the anticipated date. Justice Ademola was on Dec. 13, 2016 arraigned alongside his wife Olabowale, who retired as Head of Service of Lagos State on Nov. 10, 2017.

The couple were arraigned on 11 counts including conspiracy to receive gratification and receiving gratification of N30 million from Joe Agi and Associates, between March 11 and March 26, 2015.

The couple were, however, discharged in a ruling upholding the respective no-case submissions filed by the defendants.

The court had ruled that the prosecution was unable to make out a prima facie case with respect to any of the 11 counts on concluding its case with 19 witnesses.
