This because you have erroneously believed the DSS doesn't have the right to arrest people for bribery. The rules guiding the DSS is fortunately clear on this. Have a look at the pdf attached before to understand better.
I hv ready the attached PowerPoint, I didn't see where DSS was empowered to investigate corruption and perversion of justice cases. Please kindly assist me with that.

are we to assume that the DSS has taken over the mandate of fighting corruption from the EFCC & ICPC?

if so, then I hope the cases of the present rouges in government will be given the same gestapo like treatment.



The DSS can investigate and subsequently make arrest on corrupt related matters as prescribed in the act establishing them. As long as the NA or the President authorized it to do so.
Read section C carefully.




(3) The State Security Service shall be charged with responsibility for-

(a) the prevention and detection within Nigeria of any crime against the internal security of Nigeria;

(b) the protection and preservation of all non-military classified matters concerning the internal security of Nigeria; and

(c) such other responsibilities affecting internal security within Nigeria as the National Assembly or the President, as the case may be, may deem necessary.

I agree with your points. But note that DSS can make arrests and carry out intelligence. But EFCC retains the prosecuting power. It is clearly stated in the laws establishing the DSS. I forgot to attach the PDF but I have now modified the initial post and attached the PDF.

What is wrong in arresting a corrupt judge it's only in Nigeria that when a rich man is arrested or prosecuted for corruption, there will be coax in the air! When many innocent citizens are arrested and sent to jail for no reason because of this corrupt folks daily & nobody cares.. What is their difference with a common man Bribery is bribery, evidence is evidence (whether legally or illegally acquired). They should face the rot of the law & lets face the truth.
I wonder when we the youths will wake up and stand against this corrupt practices by our so called leaders.....

Nigeria must be sanitised at all cost & by all means..if this is what Buhari Achieves in his four years tenure the average Nigerians will appreciate him. Men,we can't continue to perpetrate corruption under the pretence of democracy . When those who ought to protect & defend our rights sell out their souls to corruption how can we have a orderly society. Let there be justice in the land & everybody will sit up. God bless the DSS ,God bless Mr President ,God bless the indefatigable EFCC ..God bless Nigeria.

I requested that you should show me where they have power more than EFCC, ICPC and NJC to investigate corruption cases against the judges, you are talking about internal security.
Re: NJC Meets As More Supreme Court Justices Face Imminent Arrest by gabbytabby: 8:59am On Oct 10, 2016
If they went after every bribe taking corrupt person more than 90 percent of all government departments will be emptied. Its about priorities and areas of major impact.

Some might not like it but it is what it is.



ivandragon:


well, I only sort clarification on the matter & the SSS may be able to carry out arrests, but usually in conjunction with the relevant security agency (in this case ICPC or EFCC).

the reason why it is dangerous for the SSS to carry on this way is primarily because the SSS while under the NSA, is a department in the presidency.

the EFCC & ICPC are still relatively independent (at least on the surface) & have a clearer mandate to go after issues bordering on financial crimes.

let's even agree that the SSS have the authority to do what they did, my question remains... when will they also go after the corrupt elements holding offices in this present regime?

please note, I am not against the fight against corruption. but this regime should not have double standards or sacred goats.

if the use of the SSS is the new standard, then it should be applied to all those who have been 'alleged' to have fraudulently enriched themselves...

Sorry about that.
I forgot I also have to educate you on how the activities of a corrupt judge directly affects the nation. Or the economic implications of such.

If you don't get it, then maybe you should just go to 2go .

The DSS got it wrong because:

1) Search Warrants are executed between 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM except on weekends.

2) Search Warrants are valid only if issued by a court of competent jurisdiction.

3) Search Warrants obtained in one State of Nigeria cannot be executed in another State excepted it is endorsed by a Magistrate or Judge equal in rank to the one that issued the Warrant.

4) Search warrants are usually executed in the presence of witness(es).

5) Only two or three agencies in Nigeria are charged with the investigation of corruption cases namely the EFCC, the ICPC and the Nigeria Police.

6) Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and VIPs who do not constitute a flight risk are usually invited to appear before investigation Agencies.

7) The National Judicial Commission (NJC) is the only body empowered to sanction Judges and Justices found wanting in the discharge of their duties.

cool The Judges in question have issued unfavourable judgements against the arresting Agency in the past; thus, casting aspersions on the motive for their arrest.

ISSUES FOR DETERMINATION

1) Did the arresting Agency actually procure an Arrest Warrant from a Court of competent jurisdiction?

2) Did the arresting Agency adhere to the rules governing the procurement and execution of a Search Warrant?

3) Did the arresting Agency exhaust the option of extending an invitation to the suspects before procuring the Arrest Warrant?

4) Did the arrested suspects at any time pose the risk of taking to flight?

5) Does the arresting Agency not have people at all the land, sea and air borders to prevent an escape of the suspects?

6) Did the arresting Agency at any time write a letter to the National Judicial Commission (NJC) highlighting the offences committed by the suspects and demanding their release for an interview?

Any person (even the government) can set up another person by planting money or gun at strategic location to achieve the intended aim.

It is the above flaws that responsible members of the society wants to prevent.

No. 1 is false, i checked google and search wareant can be executed anytime of the day both on public holidays.

I dont know much about law but i want to use my logic to guess if i have illigal 2million dollars in my house and i am invited by the police to ask if i have the money or not. Wont i go back home and quickly dispose of the money? Going by logic your number 6 is wrong

No. 4 is also false, if the is evidence stating a kidnaped victim is being held in a house, wont it be stupid of the Police to wait for the suspect to come back home before seaeching his house? Besides i recently concluded 3 seasons of (How to get Away with murder) and on several occasions seaech warrants were executed without the suspect presence.

The DSS as already released a statement that due process was followed in arresting the suspects, so i dont understand what all this noise is about
I believe we should channel our energy into fighting for defenceless Nigerians languishing in prisons accross the country because the judiciary failed to give them justice.
