There are indications that the Department of State Services (DSS) will arraign some of the judges it arrested during a series of raids in Abuja and a few states.


“Preparations are ongoing to arraign them in a competent court of jurisdiction in line with the laws of the nation,” Abdullahi Garba, an official of the Service, told journalists in Abuja on Saturday.

Operatives of the DSS raided some residences in Abuja, Port Harcourt, Gombe, Kano, Enugu and Sokoto in a series of overnight operations targeted at judges of Supreme, Appeal and High courts.

At least two supreme court judges were arrested in the sting operations.

He alleged that the affected judges were placed under surveillance after they were accused of corruption. To buttress his claims, Garba said a large sum of money in local foreign currencies was recovered at from three judges whose houses were raided.

According to him a total of N93.6m, £25, 970, €5,680 and $530,087 were recovered. Garba said the operatives also recovered banking and real estate documents.

  1. Take them to which court and before which judge. May be a court in Uganda or Ethiopia. How can you convict them without due process from point one. That is going to be very difficult.DDS will need the services of their colleagues to have any meaningful inroad at the court. These arrest or indictment should have been done differently so if there is any crime it will then fly in court without hitches. Nigeria need prayers and lot of it.
