Abuja-The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, has forwarded the names of six more judges to the Department of State Services (DSS) for investigation, reports Punch

The names of the judges sent by the AGF to the security agency were those of judges whose cases of allegations of misconduct, contained in petitions earlier sent by civil society groups to the National Judicial Council, were allegedly not investigated.

With the six names submitted to the DSS, the service is now investigating a total of 21 judges.

Seven of those being investigated were arrested  between Friday and Saturday.
