Nigerian Judge Faces Discipline for Stealing from Frozen Bank Account

A Nigerian judge has been caught attempting to steal funds from a petitioner’s frozen bank account. The incident has triggered public outcry and raised concerns about integrity within the legal system.

The Kano Judicial Service Commission recently took disciplinary actions against three magistrates and a registrar of the Kano High Court. Chief Magistrate Talatu Makama was recalled from her duties after ordering funds from a petitioner’s frozen bank account to be transferred to her personal account.

Senior Magistrate Rabi Abdulkadir faced a one-year suspension for judicial recklessness, while Senior Registrar Abdu Nasir received a warning and a promotion deferment for diverting court fees to his account. Chief Magistrate Tijjani Saleh-Minjibir was also suspended for one year due to unsatisfactory responses about his conduct.

Nigerians have expressed outrage and cynicism on social media, highlighting the need for greater accountability and transparency in the legal system.
