The Chief judge of Adamawa State, Justice Nathan Musa, who retired from service has recounted his experience with demonic defendants, including a widely acclaimed witch doctor.

Justice Musa made the revelation on Friday during a valedictory session organized in his honour at the High Court Complex, Yola.

According to the judge, who triumphed over the evil he was faced with in the course of his judicial career, said his mother taught him how to and he applied the lesson successfully.

He said, “I remember the time I was appointed to the lower bench as a magistrate/upper area court judge when friends and kit and kin felt that I needed to procure protection from marabouts. In my young ignorant days, I followed the advice.”

The Judge further urged his colleagues at all levels to fear God and carry out the dispensation of justice in accordance with the law.

According to him, no force can break them if they (judicial officers) do the right thing.

Present at the event was Governor Ahmadu Fintiri who said that Justice Musa had been a workforce whose sense of humanity endeared him to all who came his way.

Justice Hafsat Abdurahaman, being the immediate senior judicial officer within the cadre, is likely to take over from Musa as the acting chief Judge.
