ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The operatives of Department of State Security Services (DSS) between lateFriday and early Saturday morning clampdown on the households of some judges, including Justice Walter Onnoghen and his colleague, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta of the Supreme Court in Abuja.
Also affected were two Justices of the Federal High Court, Justice Adeniyi Ademola and Nnamdi Dimgba. The invasion of the apex court jurists’ houses took place at the Judicial Officers’ Quarters, while Justices Ademola and Dimgba occurred at the Apo Legislative Quarters.
While Justice Ademola was whisked away around 5am Saturday, Dimgba’s brother was allegedly beaten while the search lasted.
The reasons for the security operatives’ operations could not be immediately established, but it was that operatives presented search warrant.
Justice Onnoghen is one of the three judges to be considered by the National Judicial Service Commission, as successor to the retiring current Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Mahmud Mohammed.
On his part, Justice Ademola has since given ruling that Federal Government should release and allow former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col Sambo Dasuki (retd) to have access to his international passport as well as be allowed to travel abroad to attend to his health challenge.
