Garba assumed jurisdiction over the case despite criminal trial bordering on false declaration of assets is exclusively vested in the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Angered by the criminal summon, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad, ordered the disciplinary action against a judge.
A source disclosed that the acting Chief Judge of the FCT High Court and chairman of the FCT Judicial Service Committee, Justice Hussein Baba Yusuf, would chair the disciplinary committee.
Justice Baba Yusuf is expected to submit the committee’s probe report with 21 days.

Soludo would be up against Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
