Dead Man Among Those Banned By Buhari From Traveling Outside Nigeria (Photo)

Innocent Umezulike, former Enugu State CJ who was buried last month, is 1 of 50 banned by Buhari from traveling. Justice Professor I.A Umezulike was the Chief Judge of Enugu State for over 13 years, remarkably the longest serving Chief Judge in South Eastern Nigeria and the second longest serving Chief Judge in Nigeria.

Justice Professor Umezulike was an acclaimed legal luminary on Conveyancing, Adverse Possession, Land and Property Law haven single-handedly authored and published over 23 books in these fields. Justice Professor Umezulike passed away at a private hospital in London, United Kingdom surrounded by his beloved children. The family requests for privacy and respect at this very difficult time.

He was recommended for compulsory retirement by the National Judiciary Council, NJC, in 2016 following petitions against him by an Enugu based lawyer.

He was later dragged to High courts in Enugu and Port Harcourt by the Economic and financial crimes Commission, EFCC, and his bank accounts frozen over some of the allegations that brought about his forced exit from the Bench.
