One of the judges recently arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, of the Federal High court Abuja, has withdrawn from the trial of former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki(rtd).
The judge announced his withdrawal from the former NSA’s trial on Tuesday before the court.
Ademola cited allegations of corruption levelled against him by the DSS, as the reason for his withdrawal.
Recall that operatives of the DSS had recently arrested some judges across the country over allegations of corruption, but they were later released.
Ademola, who was one of the affected judges, in his response claimed he was being harassed and intimidated by the DSS for granting bail to Dasuki and the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
