Video: Embattled Kebbi Judge Blocked From Delivering Judgments In Her Court

We are in a receipt of a video depicting the prevention of beleaguered Kebbi High Court Judge, Justice Elizabeth Karatu from giving judgment in cases before her.

The shocking incident comes a day after the Supreme Court in an ignominious decision, invalidated an election tribunal’s verdict, in effect nullifying the entire democratic votes of Osun state gubernatorial elections, on the dubious argument that one judge was absent from the trial.

It is believed that possibly to avert such a travesty and miscarriage of justice, Justice Elizabeth Karatu, who was recently denied confirmation as Chief Judge of Kebbi State, came to deliver all her remaining judgments before her retirement.

Sources we spoke to indicate that in addition to discrimination on the basis of religion, there were efforts by powerful political forces to force her to pervert justice in cases.

From the video you can see Justice Elizabeth Karatu being prevented by a Civil Defense staff from entering the court. Her police orderly can be seen trying to reason with the civil defense agent who stuck to his guns.

This latest development is the continuation of the rape and destruction of the judiciary under the Buhari administration.

If the terrible precedent created by the Supreme Court yesterday in the Osun case is followed, poor litigants whose cases have dragged on for years will lose their rights simply because the judge was denied the opportunity to read her judgment before her retirement.
