This significant reshuffling of judicial officers was announced in a statement released on Wednesday by the Assistant Director (Information) of the Federal High Court of Nigeria, Catherine Oby Christopher.

The redeployment comes as a response to recent developments in the Federal High Court, including the appointment of 23 new judges, necessitating a reallocation of judicial resources to better serve the Nigerian judicial system.

Justice Tsoho’s office highlighted that the transfers were prompted by the appointment of new judges and other pressing requirements within the court.

The affected judges have been instructed to report to their respective duty stations before the resumption date from the Christmas vacation, which is scheduled for the 8th day of January 2024. This directive underscores the urgency and importance of the redeployment in ensuring the seamless continuation of judicial activities.

The redistribution of judges encompasses several key locations across the nation, including Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Benin, and Kano. The comprehensive list of judicial division postings is as follows:
