DSS arrests two more judges, bank accounts frozen

13 October 2016, 10:05

Abuja - The Department of State Service (DSS) has arrested two more judges in continuation of the clampdown on indicted judges across the country, Nation reports.

This brings the number of judges arrested so far to nine in the recent clampdown on allegedly corrupt judicial personnel.

The seven judges arrested last weekend have however been released on bail but still being grilled by investigators.

The two judges, Justices Bashir Sukola and Ladan Manir of the Kaduna State High Court, were said to have been arrested in Kaduna and taken to the DSS Headquarters in Abuja at about 8.30pm.

Upon arrest, they were immediately taken in for interrogation.

It was gathered that six other judges are under probe.

Also, the DSS has reportedly frozen the accounts of some of the judges under investigation - "huge lodgments" were said to be discovered in the accounts.

Meanwhile the Federal government has dropped plans to arraign alleged corrupt judges arrested in a DSS raid at the weekend according to News24.

It is not clear why the judges are not going to be arraigned again.

The judge were scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
