Published

on

The Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad have been charged to court over alleged falsification of age by businessman, Mr Tochi Michael. He dragged him , before an FCT High Court.

Tochi in a suit filed before the High Court in April with suit Number FCT/HC/BW/CV/79/2019, alleged that the CJN deliberately falsified his date of birth.

Michael alleged that the acting CJN, reduced his age by three year. He stated that the date of birth of the CJN as contained in his official documents dating 31 December, 1950 is different from that which he used upon his appointment as a judicial officer which is 31 December, 1953, NAN reports

The petitioner in the originating summon is praying the court to determine whether such act of the CJN does not constitute a criminal act of perjury, falsification and forgery.

Michael in the originating summon also prayed the court to determine whether by falsifying his date of birth from Dec. 31, 1950 to Dec. 31, 1953 upon being appointed to Nigeria Bench as a judicial officer he has not breached the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Plaintiff prayed the court to determine if Justice Mohammed has not breached the Code of Conduct for judicial officers and consequently brought the image of Nigeria Judiciary to a state of disrepute.

The petitioner in his reliefs is praying the court for a declaration that the defendant falsified his date of birth and that the defendant has desecrated the breach of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN).

He is also praying for an order directing the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to prosecute the defendant for the offence of perjury and an order which the court may deem it fit.

The counsel to the plaintiff and the plaintiff according to the counsel to the CJN Mr Sam Ologunorisa, SAN, failed to show up in the court.

Ologunorisa asked the court to do the needful by letting justice prevail. He stressed that the plaintiff and his counsel are afraid of showing up in court following a suit filed by them.

“We on our part filed a notice of preliminary objection, a counter affidavit and a written address. We urge the court to deem it fit that the originating summon has been argued.

“We have to look at exhibit III of the originating summon.

“We urge the court to dismiss the suit. The case is meant to scandalise the CJN,” he argued.

Justice Danlami Senchi who ruled on the prayers said that another opportunity would be given to the petitioner to appear in the court to prove the allegation.

Justice Senchi adjourned the matter until Friday and he ordered that hearing notices be served on the petitioner.
