High-profile corruption cases’ judges undergo training

No fewer than 35 judges have been nominated to man various courts which the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, directed the heads of various courts to designate in order to enhance speedy determination of high-profile corruption cases.

The courts are to exclusively handle corruption, money laundering, abuse of office and economic and financial crimes cases.

Our correspondent learnt on Monday that the judges, nominated by their various heads of courts, were trained at the National Judicial Institute in Abuja on November 6 and 7, 2017.

The training was said to be the first in a series that would be organised as soon as more courts are designated to try corruption cases and judges are nominated to man them.
