DSS arrests two more judges, freeze accounts of others under investigation

Agents of the Department of State Security DSS have arrested two more judges over allegations of corruption. According to The Nation, Justices Bashir Sukola and Ladan Manir of the Kaduna State High Court, were arrested in Kaduna and taken to the DSS Headquarters in Abuja at about 8.30pm yesterday October 12th.

A source in the DSS says that accounts of some of the judges currently under investigation have been frozen.


“Some accounts have been frozen through orders of the court. This affects some of the judges. Not all of them. We found some huge lodgements that are questionable in some accounts and in addition to that we also observed the inflow of their salaries over a long period without them making any withdrawal at all. What that means is that they don’t live on their salaries at all. Those accounts have been frozen but as I said not all of the judges are affected.”
The source stated that the judges have not been charged to court because the National Judicial Council NJC is yet to make a pronouncement on the matter
“We are waiting for the action of the NJC. We expect the NJC to suspend them, otherwise it’s like taking a sitting judge to court. In the Service, when anybody is being investigated for any serious crime, the first thing we do is to place such a person on suspension. After the investigation, such a person would face trial and get dismissed from service on conviction and later face prosecution in the law court.”

it's only in Nigeria that a man steals a goat and gets 6 years imprisonment while looters of millions gets a fine of half a million and 3 months under house arrest.
Corrupt judges are worse than armed robbers. no need to spend their salaries nah, yeye people.

In time all will be revealed to the common eyes! This is a real 'sanitization' of the judiciary arm of government.

Hoping the NJC will do the needful. Sanity must return to our judiciary.

my question is this, those DSS and the FG themselves, if they make them Judges in this Country, will they be free of what they are accusing these people of? Do they know what it takes to be a Judge? to be a Lawyer self not to talk of. This is the only Profession you get to keep reading books every blessed day till you retire and even after retirement they are still reading. You read on every case and everything. Continuous updating on events, issues and happenings. To know how to handle any case on ground and provide solution. They should stop disturbing these people. Folish People. what do you expect from illiterates.

Meanwhile, I heard from a reliable source that dss went to look for irrelevant stories to implicate some of these judges because they didn't give ruling in their favour, particularly ademola and dimkpa regarding Dasuki, but it shouldn't be so n.a., a judge has the right to make whatever decision he seems right abi n.a. una own the judges

Shut up for ONCE!

Some of the judges are already confessing. So just shut up there and stop supporting corruption. Idiot!

Where are those stupid wailers that are accusing Buhari of only arresting judges in the Eastern part of the country? Are the two judges in the post not Northerners? After, you will say Buhari is selective. Stmcheew

@Anonymous 6:37PM you are a fool. Go and check the list of judges arrested so far. Apart from these two judges, there is another judge from Sokoto and Adamawa. Always listen to the news and read newspapers instead of coming here to comment ignorantly and senselessly
