DSS officers attack Supreme Court judges

08 October 2016, 12:26

Lagos - Officers of the Department of State Security have attacked two Supreme Court judges motivated by the feeling that the two judges made unfair rulings and disparaging remarks against the security firm, Naij reports.

The two judges, Nnamdi Dimgba and Adebiyi Ademola had their houses surrounded on Friday night by the security officers who used sledgehammers to break into their homes before assaulting them.

Governor Nyesome Wike meanwhile also stopped security officers from attempting to kidnap another judge when the officers blocked the entrance to the judge's home, stating that they were acting on orders from above.

News24 reported that operatives of the Department Security Service also arrested one Iroegbu Emenike, a 38-year-old blogger and publisher of an online news medium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The Coalition of Human Rights Defenders (COHRD) which is presently looking into his case disclosed that the blogger’s wife, Ekaette Emenike Iroegbu said,  “the blogger was arrested by three (3) SSS operatives who invaded their Uyo residence in a Gestapo style in a black jeep.

The operatives were said to have taken away the two phones of Mrs. Emenike; the bloggers own phones and laptop, etc. After ransacking their apartment, they whisked the blogger away without disclosing the reason for his arrest and their destination.”
