DSS Arrests 2 Supreme Court Judges & 5 Other judges by YouthsPC0: 12:25pm On Oct 08, 2016
In a nationwide crackdown, the Federal Government last night began rounding up judges suspected to have aided and abetted corruption in over the years.

But, the arrest of the judges, which was carried out by operatives from the Department of Security Services, was in relation to those who allegedly took huge cash to pervert the cause of Justice before, during and after the 2015 general elections.

Saturday Vanguard gathered that among those taken into custody last night were two Supreme Court justices, who allegedly played ignoble but crucial roles in subverting judgement in favour of one of the two leading political parties in Akwa Ibom State and another state in the South East.

Three judges from Sokoto, Bauchi and Kano were also taken into custody for allegedly collecting bribes, according to a top source involved in the operation.
Similarly, a popular Federal High Court judge in Abuja from the South West and another who recently countered his colleague’s judgement relating to the ongoing PDP crisis, was also picked up.

Also taken into custody last night, were some suspected fraudulent court registrars, believed to have aided and abetted the sale of justice.

Another federal high court judge, who lives in Apo area of Abuja, had his house surrounded by DSS operatives as at the time of going to press but the secret police could not break in. The judge who recently freed a retired Air Force officer accused of taking bribes running into billions of Naira, was scared and was calling for help, not knowing why he was surrounded by armed security men.

A top Federal Ministry of Justice official said last night: “The Federal Government has commenced the arrest and detention of some corrupt judges as part of its effort to cleanse the judiciary.

“This exercise has just begun and will continue until the bad eggs are flushed out to give the country a new lease of life.

” The operation may not be concluded tonight but I can assure you that we will carry it to a logical conclusion in the overall interest of the nation,” the official said .

Never in the history of Nigeria there been a deliberate attempt to emasculate and destroy state institutions like we are seeing under General Buhari, it appears there is a systematic plot to silence everyone except Buharis cows.

These people are playing a script, the arrest of the Next CJN on trumpt up charges of corruption was well timed to give Buhari the perfect excuse not to present his name for confirmation as CJN as such keeping him incommunicado will allow the current Chief Justice of Nigeria, Hon. Justice Mahmud Mohammed due for retirement by November 10, to handover to The next in rank to Onnoghen Hon. Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad from Bauchi State. a Northern Muslim as acting CJN .

Justices Onnoghen who is the second in rank and has been nominated by the Federal Judical Service commission (FJSC) as successor to the outgoing Chief Justice of Nigeria just last week

Most likely the hawks were taken unawares by the FJSC nomination and decided to strike before the national judical council (NJC) makes the final Nomination


Since after Justice Irikefe in 1985, the North has produced virtually all the CJNs till date: Justice Mohammed Bello (1987-1995), Justice Muhammadu Lawal Uwais (1995-2006), Justice Salisu Modibo Alfa Belgore (2006-2007), Justice Idris Legbo Kutigi (2007-2009), Justice Aloysius Iyorgyer Katsina-Alu (2009-2011), Justice Aloma Mariam Mukhtar (2012-2014) and the presiding deity, Justice Mahmud Mohammed (2014 till date).


No matter what a judge is perceived to have done against the APC whether true or imaginary it does not warrant the kind of criminal treatment been meted out to them, the Gestapo manner in which the homes of Judges were raided and members of their families beaten up points to the fact that Nigeria has indeed gone to the dogs a nation where the only laws that exists are the laws that suits the hawks.

The invasion of the homes of the high & Supreme court Judges at an unholy hour is part of a wider plot to turn the judiciary into a bingo in the hands of Buhari and his gang, initially they plotted to use the courts to sweep the leadership of the the National Assembly into Kuje prison, when it failed the turned on the courts.

Everyone knows the incompetent and clueless Buhari will be the simplest President to be impeached if the National Assembly decides to thus his attempt to plant a stooge as CJN and destroy an institution.

Whether Buhari will be allowed to destroy what is left of Nigeria will be known in the next few days

You are arresting judges who did not rule in your favour but honouring justice Aband who dishes out frivolous judgement like egusi soup?

May GOD help this cesspit of a country.

Our democracy is in a mess. This can never happen in a sane cline. The Legislative arm should call Buhari to order or impeach him.
Judgement is based on the evidences and petitions put forward by both the persecution and defense counsel.

Buhari needs to stop bastardizing our constitutional democracy. This is the height. Nigeria & rians Wake up! This is getting out of hand, Buhari is imposing himself as an autocratic leader on us. This has to stop

The arrest is simply ethnically motivated to give the Fulani nominee the seat of CJN using fictitious indictment to disqualify the SS Justice.

Everybody will not be like Buhari who doesn't know how to invest. CBN and APC paid #100million naira to kidnappers, if a business man withdraw or carry such money, won't they arrest him.

All this is just to dent the image of the incoming CJN who is from south south in order to give way for a northerner to take over.

This is great, but I have my reservations about the timing for these arrests. Why should the supposed incoming CJN be included? The Judiciary has been very corrupt, but this govt too has been too lenient on them. Why should judges not be tried speedily when they're caught red-handed in bribe, but simply suspended or even transfered to another location? To go and continue his heist, isn't it? During the election petitions, many judges were busted by the EFCC of having collected bribes to twist justice, but they were only removed and given a slap on their wrist. Isn't that absurd? Why are they treating them as if they were constitutionally immune from prosecution? So many questions.

NDA are hustlers and are looking for Amnesty/negotiations etc. it is all business. It has nothing to do with Jonathan or Ijaws.

Ijaw is fully part of Nigeria project, we don't give a damn about you people bigoted and bitter way of doing things.

As for Jonathan, though I campaigned for him, I still criticise him when I'm convinced he errs. In fact, my Ijaw brothers know that and I don't hide it.

We arnt driven by bitterness.... Kanu need your sympathy bro...
