Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello reportedly walked out Justice Nasir Ajanah, the Chief Judge (CJ) of the state, from a function on Tuesday.
The function was attended by top government officials and others from the judiciary.
The CJ, who was said to have been officially invited to the function by the protocol officer of the Government House, was seated before arrival of the governor.
However, some minutes later before the arrival of the governor, his Chief Security Officer allegedly approached the CJ and informed him the governor gave a directive that he should not be allowed to attend the function.
The CJ thereafter left the government house and returned to his office.
The development may not be unconnected to the face-off between the executive and the state judiciary, arising from disagreements over table payment of judicial staff.
