Real reason Why Buhari approved the sack of Justice Akanbi

Justice Lambo Akanbi of the Port Harcourt Division of the Federal High Court, has been compulsorily retired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Akanbi’s compulsory retirement, over cases of misconduct, was approved by Buhari, says the Acting Director of Information, National Judicial Council, Soji Oye.
Oye said in a statement on Wednesday, that the compulsory retirement came to be, as a result of the recommendation of the NJC to the President, after its 74th meeting held on November 4 and 5, 2015.
The recomendation, he said was made following various allegations levelled against him by Shell Petroleum Company Nigeria Limited.

“In the exercise of its constitutional powers, at the same meeting of November 4 and 5, 2015, council had suspended Honourable Justice Lambo Akanbi from office before the approval for his compulsory retirement by President Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR).”
