Justice Stanley Nnaji Career
Stanley Nnaji, then a judge of Enugu State High Court, was suspended in March 2004 for wrongly assuming jurisdiction on a matter outside his state. The judge had ordered Tafa Balogun, then Inspector-General of police, to remove Chris Ngige, who was then the governor of Anambra State. Nnoruka Udechukwu, the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, petitioned the NJC, complaining that the ruling was in bad faith and against the code of conduct of judicial officers.
He was from Nike, Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Nnaji was killed on Sunday evening in Enugu while driving in a black Mercedes Benz SUV.
A video posted on Twitter by a witness showed how the assailants double-crossed the judge’s car, dragged him out and shot him.
The incident was said to have happened beside the Enugu Diagnostics Centre, by Ebeano Tunnel.
