Two Supreme Court Justices, Five Other Justices Arrested Over Bribery


The Federal Government has commenced the arrest of judges who allegedly took bribe to subvert justice in their rulings on the 2015 general elections.

The Department of State Services, DSS, last night arrested two Supreme Court justices for their alleged roles in subverting justice in favour of one of the two leading political parties in Akwa Ibom State and another state in the South East.

The secret police also apprehended three judges from Sokoto, Bauchi and Kano, who were also taken into custody.

Disclosing the arrest of the judges, a source in the Federal Ministry of Justice told Vanguard that, “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.”

It was learnt that 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 crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, were also arrested.

Also, some alleged fraudulent court registrars were said to be taken into custody.


Earlier, the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike had intervened when a combined team of the DSS and the Police came for a judge in Port Harcourt .
