Judge Who’s Handing Saraki & Ekweremadu Case Dies

The number of judges of the Federal High Court reduced by one on
Wednesday with the death of Justice Evoh Steven Chukwu of the court’s
Abuja division.

The judge, who was said to have died early yesterday in an hospital in
Garki, Abuja, had been reportedly sick for about a month now.

Although the court’s management has not issued a formal statement about
judge’s death, many officials of the court confirmed the development.

Before his death, Justice Chukwu was handling major cases such as

Trial of ex-Adamawa State governor, Murtala Nyako and his two children;
the trial of former officials of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF),
Sani Lulu, Taiwo Ogunjobi and others.

The judge was also handling the case instituted by 5 Senators led by Abu
Ibrahim, seeking to void the election that produced Bukola Saraki and
Ike Ekweremadu as Senate President and Deputy President.

Born on August 24, 1964 in Afikpo North area of Ebonyi State, Justice
Chukwu was appointed a judge of the Federal High Court on January 3,
2008.
