Sources from judicial circles have informed this paper that Principal Magistrate Taiwo Ade Alagbe has resigned from the judiciary, with effect from 1 December 2012.

Taiwo Ade Alagbe, prior to his resignation, was the principal magistrate at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

Sources further told his paper that he has taken up a new appointment at the Assets Management and Recovery Corporation (AMRC) in Banjul as a legal officer and head of the Legal Department.

The source further disclosed to this paper that the former principal magistrate’s contract had expired, since November 2012.

Alagbe was the principal magistrate at the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court before being transferred to the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.

He also served as a travelling magistrate in the Central River Region and Upper River regions.

Attempts to contact the judiciary secretary, John Belford, for official confirmation proved futile.
