Buhari should not test the resolve of Nigerians. We are not averse to cleansing of the judiciary, but doing it in a gustapo style like there is a maximum power won't be tolerated.

For the record, I am against anything corruption, I will always call for cleansing of the sector but we have to be careful not to allow the President to Exercise maximum power so as not to create an Hitler.

You guys are funny. Nigeria has never really had any laws backing whatever it's people do. It has always been might is right. Whoever was in power did whatever the phuck he/she wanted. This is not new or surprising. This is what happens in a jungle justice society. Embrace it.

Exactly! My question is why is it that the DSS are only gunning after judges that ruled in favor of PDP? Are we saying these are the only bad guys in the sector?

That aside, why invade a man's house in the wee hours of 1am when the law stipulates that a search Warrant can only be executed between 06:00 hours and 18:00 hours?

Secondly, even if they engaged in bribery, bribery is not a treasonable offence in Nigeria. It is their right to first be invited, if they refused invitation then any arrest would be justified. But were they arrested?

My primary concern is that Mr President is trying to arrogate himself maximum power which must be resisted.

Zombies would not see it this way...

Sometime in the early hours of October 8th, 2016 men of the Directorate of State Security (DSS) carried out Gestapo like invasions on the homes of a number of Justices of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and the Federal High Court.

The affected Justices of the Supreme Court were, Sylvanus Ngwuta and Inyang Okoro. The affected Judges of the Federal High Court were Muazu Pindiga, Adeniyi Ademola, Abdullahi Liman and Nnamdi Dimgba.

At this time, Justices Ngwuta and Okoro of the Supreme Court and Justices Adeniyi & Pindiga had been abducted and detained. Justice Dimgba only escaped abduction because he was not at home at the time. Justice Abdullahi’s abduction was prevented by the timely intervention of Governor Nyesom Wike, who insisted on the observance of the rule of law and the application of due process.

Governor Nyesome Wike was assaulted by the men of the DSS during his intervention causing him to sustain injuries on his arm. At a point, an officer pointed a fully cocked gun at him and threatened to shoot him.

The invasion was carried out between 0100hrs and 0500hrs in the early morning using hundreds of fully armed men of the DSS. During the invasion, the Justices were manhandled and members of their families as well as their household staff beaten up.

This invasion is the latest in a series of actions taken by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration which reveal its disregard for the rule of law and its abject disdain for the Principle of Separation of Powers.

This inexorable slide into fascism began with the invasion of the Akwa Ibom State Government House by the self same DSS, the continued detention of several people despite Courts ordering their release, the invasion of the Ekiti State House of Assembly and detention of Hon. Akanni Afolabi and the invasion of the Zamfara State House of Assembly.

This slide into fascism has included a sustained attack on the leadership of the National Assembly as President Buhari has sought to break its independence and make it a rubber stamp to suit his will.

It is worthy to note that NEVER in the history of our Country has any President attacked the Judiciary in such a manner. Even the late dictator - General Sani Abacha, whose regime is remembered by many as the second worst regime in Nigerian history, did not carry out such Gestapo style attacks on the members of the Judiciary.

By bringing this attack to the Judiciary, President Buhari has shown that he has no desire to respect the pillars of our democracy. He has shown his desire to kill off our democracy and convert it to an autocracy without checks and balances.

The government has no regard for the rule of law. They do not care about Court Orders. This Government has disregarded the Orders of the ECOWAS Court and every other Courts in the land and continue to detain Dasuki illegally. They continue to detain hundreds of Nigerians without bringing them to trial and against valid Court Orders.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Constitution in Section 153(1)(i) and Part 1 of the Third Schedule thereto establishes the National Judicial Council (NJC) and empowers same to regulate and discipline judges across the Country. The proper path to follow to discipline erring judges will be to forward a petition containing any wrong doing to the NJC along with any evidence in support thereof.

The path not to follow is this Gestapo style invasion in the middle of the night that involves the use of sledgehammers to breakdown gates and front doors for DSS to gain access to the homes.

Nigerians can no longer afford to stand aside and watch the Buhari Administration destroy the foundations of our democracy that we have built for several years. Nigerians have a duty to speak out against this sort of tyranny.

God bless Nigeria.

Rubbish write up. They are corrupt and must be exposed and jailed. In China, they will face public execution. Buhari never did anything wrong. Corruption is an epidemic in our system hence our judiciary has been the main cause of the problem. The corrupt ones should be shown the way out. It happens same way in most civilized countries.

Nobody is above the law. The federal govt is trying to eradicate corruption in the judiciary and when the judiciary is corrupt we as a nation aren't safe. The only concern is the barbaric way it was been done by breaking down fence or whatsoever and in the wee hours of the night. The judiciary is even our problem that's why there is jungle justice upandan cos they keep adjourning cases.

This argument doesn't make sense.

Like when a student gets caught for making noise and he says... " It wasn't only me... Babatunde too was talking. Why don't you catch him too"

They got caught. If they are guilty, why are you angry?

Is it possible to catch all criminals at once. Catch the ones we can now. Buhari wouldn't be there forever to protect his people. Abi him presidency na for life.

Nigerians don't want any improvement for Nigeria. I swear.

The NBA President called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order the immediate release of the arrested judges, vowing that there would be consequences should the demand be ignored.
Mahmoud said, “I want to emphasise again that we are not under military rule and we cannot accept this unholy event and Gestapo-style operation.
“We, therefore, call on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately caution all the state security agencies and to respect the rule of law and to respect due process.
“I want to, on behalf of the association, make the very following clear and unequivocal demands: we demand the immediate and unconditional release of all the judges abducted from about 9pm yesterday (Friday).
“The release must be done immediately and without any conditions. Two, we demand that the Department of State Services should limit itself to its statutory and constitutional responsibilities.
