Gambian President Appoints Nigerian as Chief Justice
Banjul (Gambia) (AFP) - President Yahya Jammeh has appointed a Nigerian man as Gambia's top judge after sacking the only woman to have held the post, his office said on Thursday.

The brief communique gave no biographical details for Fagbenle, although he has been cited by local media as presiding over many high-profile cases in recent years and was sworn in as a Court of Appeal justice five years ago, according to a government release dated from 2009.
Agyemang replaced another Nigerian, Joseph Wowo, who became mired in a bribery scandal in July last year and was jailed on a string of corruption charges in January. Add a comment
