Additionally, Chief Magistrate Tijjani Saleh Minjibir, magistrate Court no 60, was recalled from judicial duties for a period of one year, effective immediately, due to serious misconduct and judicial recklessness. He is to cease all judicial activities and report to the High Head quarters for posting.
