Why we raided homes of some judges in Abuja, Port Harcourt, others – SSS

The Department of State Services DSS has given reasons for raiding the homes of some of the judges across the country over allegations of corruption leveled against them. An agent of the security agent, Garba Abdullahi, gave reasons at a press conference this afternoon. Read a copy of his press statement after the cut...

 
Good afternoon gentlemen of the Press.
The Department of State Services (DSS) in the past few days, has embarked on series of special sting operations involving some Judges of the Supreme, Appeal and High Courts. These operations were based on allegations of corruptions and other acts of professional misconduct by a few of the suspected Judges. The Service action is in line with its core mandate, as we have been monitoring the expensive and luxurious lifestyle of some of the Judges as well as complaints from the concerned public over judgment obtained fraudulently and on the basis amounts of money paid.
The judges involved were invited, upon which due diligence was exhibited and their premises searched. The searches have uncovered huge raw cash of various denominations, local and foreign currencies, with real estate worth several millions of Naira and documents affirming unholy acts by these Judges. Meanwhile, some of them have made useful statements while a few have declined even with the glaring evidences that were found against them in terms of material cash, documents and property recovered pointing to their compromise.
In one of the States where the Service operations were conducted, credible intelligence revealed that the Judge had Two Million United States Dollars ($2,000,000 USD) stashed in his house. When he was approached for due search to be conducted, he in concert with the State Governor, mobilized thugs against the Service team. The team restrained itself in the face of unbridled provocative activities by those brought in by the Governor. Unfortunately, the Judge and Governor also engaged the tacit support of a sister security agency.
The Service surveillance team noticed that upon frustrating the operation, the Judge with the active support of the Governor craftily moved the money to an unknown location which the Service is currently making effort to unravel.
Meanwhile, large amount including foreign/local currencies have been recovered. Summaries of these include:
SUMMARY OF RECOVERED MONEY
1. NAIRA – N93,558,000.00
2. DOLLARS – $530,087
3. POUNDS – £25,970
4. EURO – €5,680
Other foreign currencies were also recovered. This were recovered from just three (3) of the judges. These in addition to other banking documents, including real estate documents have been recovered. Meanwhile preparations are ongoing to arraign them in a competent court of jurisdiction in line with the laws of the nation. The Service would want to clearly state that it has never invited Justice Walter NKANU ONNOGHEN for investigation, neither is he being investigated by this Service. In addition the Service would like to put it on record, that it has tremendous respect for the Judiciary and would not do anything to undermine it or its activities. The Service will also join hands with this noble institution in its fight to rid it of few corrupt Judges whose actions is undermining not only the Judiciary but the common bond of our national life.
Ladies and gentlemen, this current operation will be sustained and followed till sanity and sanctity is restored to the esteemed third arm of government and public confidence is regained. Members of the public are also encouraged to avail the Service of any information which could assist in this drive to rid our nation of corrupt practices and tendencies.
THANK YOU.
Abdullahi GARBA,
Department of State Services,
Abuja.

The DSS is a bunch of thugs. Are we not in a democracy? Is there no more rule of law in Nigeria? There are procedures for entering people's homes. You can't just barge in like a bunch of animals that you are. Where is the search warrant? I blame all this thuggery on Buhari and APC and until they are kicked out Nigerians will know no peace

Why only Rivers State? And where is the search warrant? Without it whatever evidence is not admissible in court.

100k Job For Graduate Engineers!!!

Don't be dissapointed if you just jumped on this post due to the caption. You see, that's what your over dependence on certificates instead of skills can do. A well packaged Samsung or Lebanese, Nigerian or other nationals or company cellphones support office would send out adverts like this caption, and young people would rush in applications in millions. But some, in fact many in that group have the capacity to learn and set up a similar outlet, making multiples of that same amount they expect to be paid! Why?

1. There, the company would give him an identity tag for his role that may not be tagged "phone repairer". So he feels 'cool' working there even for 50k.
2. He conditions his expectations to a guaranteed price tag at the end of the month.
3. I don't just know ...really

Guess when the NJC will act against its corrupt members .... Never! What baffles me is how Nigerians are always so quick to defend those who contribute to the underdevelopment of their country yet they open their foul mouths to complain about the state of the country. Bad people truly deserve bad leadership. You better reconcile with your conscience and save your sentimemts for those who suffer the consequences of this massive corruption the most.

Buhari and the few honest people around him cannot do it alone of you people won't stand up for justice. Keep supporting them and you will never quit complaining and you will leave your children the same legacy.

Statement released and signed by Abdullahi GARBA...

From the same end as Buhari; the bigot with which God cursed Nigeria. And ALL the arrested judges are from the South. What else is there to see ?

me said...

This is ridiculous! Bihari and this government are shameless. But abt 270million in total for 3 judges is really not a lot of money for them. Ordinary chief of army staff that doesn't earn half as much as they do bought 2 houses in Dubai worth more than the combined worth of 3 judges. So what are we saying here. Bihari has destroyed democracy and the judiciary, period!!

Anonymous said...

May the Almighty God bless our DSS for once. Our current crops of judges are nothing more than robbers and extortionists. The Supreme Court has become a Supreme Curse to this country. The so called Temple of Justice is nothing better than a Temple of injustice. The Nigerian Bar Association may shout itself hoarse on the issue of the raids on these corrupt judges, the Nigerian people will not listen to them for they are hand in glove with these judges. Are our judges homes now Bureau de Change offices.By the time Buhari's time is done official corruption will be a thing of the past in this country. Amen.

Some governors that did not win elections are governors today because of these corrupt judges. Also, some politicians that looted Nigeria dry are walking freely on the streets today because of these corrput judges and some idiots are supporting the judges. This is why Nigeria can never move forward. Nigeria stinks. Tufiakwa!
