Nigerians concerned over Buhari leadership after DSS raids

09 October 2016, 14:37

Abuja - Many Nigerians were left concerned by the methods used by President Muhammadu Buhari in his anti-graft war on corruption after operatives from the Department of Secret Service (DSS) raided the houses of Supreme Court judges, Naij reports.

Former Education Minister, Oby Ezekwesili warned President Buhari that he would need to follow due processes in his anti-corruption war or else he would eventually conceded defeat.

Ezekwesili urged Buhari to revert to the use of law and frowned upon the violent methods that were used by the DSS operatives who assaulted the judges across a number of states.

News24 meanwhile reported that the judges who were arrested and had their homes raided by DSS operatives are set to be arraigned for corruption after huge sums of money in foreign currencies were discovered at their homes.

According to reports, some of the arrests were linked to Governor Nyesom Wike while a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were also indicted.

It is believed that the judges had received bribes from Governor Wike from Rivers State, with the Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC) being aware of the charges against the judges.

Earlier on Sunday, lawyers serving under the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) declared a state of emergency in the judiciary after the continued raiding of judges homes by armed DSS operatives.
