Justice Omotosho in his ruling on the case by instituted by the incorporated trustees of the media against the NBC on Wednesday said the commission did not comply with the law when when it sat as a complainant and the judge on its own matter as such cannot confer Judicial Powers on itself to impose criminal sanctions.
