MEET ABUJA’S MOST CONTROVERSIAL JUDGE, JUSTICE OKON ABANG

Many have described him as controvercial. Others (especially the PDP) see him as a stooge of the rival APC party planted in the FCT court to do hatchet jobs for the ruling party.
He presently handles cases involving former PDP National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh, case filed against Abia State Governor Ikpeaxu which led to his being removed from office as well as Ali Module Sheriff ‘s case against PDP.
Curiously many of these cases have been controversial as the has delivered judgements that have generated controversies.

Here is his CV. Not so impressive if you ask me
