Reports reaching us from the National Industrial Court (NIC) Lagos reveals that Justice Kanyip of the National Industrial Court today withdrew from a case filed by the firm of Femi Falana citing an alleged unguarded comment attributed to Mr. Femi Falana SAN and his subsequent refusal to appear before his Learned Brother Justice J.D Peters.
Justice Peters had summoned Mr. Falana to appear before him to clear the air on a an alleged statement attributed to him where he said that courts in the country are now supermarkets where the rich go for shopping. Our source indicated that rather than appear before Justice Peters, Falana had written to the NJC questioning Justice Peter’s competence.
It would be recalled that as a guest speaker at the opening ceremony of NBA Enugu branch Law Week in December, 2016, Falan had decried the corruption in Nigeria’s judiciary allegedly called courts in the country supermarkets where the rich go for shopping.
