Adeniyi Ademola, one of the seven arrested judges who were accused of professional misconduct by the Directorate of State Services (DSS), has come out to defend himself of these allegations.

Ademola alongside Nnamdi Dimgba, judges of the Federal High Court, Abuja resumed sitting at their various courts on Monday.

Ademola, commenting on the raid said he was being victimised in respect of an old score he has with the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami.

Contrary to the SSS allegations of finding tens of thousands of dollars and millions of naira from the residence of these judges, Ademola said he was forced to attest to the alleged discoveries at gunpoint, as no such amount was found in his home.

He alleged that the raid on his home and his arrest by the DSS were meant to punish him for rulings he had given in favour of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, and leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

The DSS had raided and arrested seven judges across the nation last week after petitions bothering on allegations of fraud were made against them.

The security service alleged that it recovered tens of thousands of dollars and millions of naira from the residence of these judges, adding it had enough evidence to prosecute the judges for corruption.

The NJC after a two meeting deliberating on the raid came out to condemn the actions of the DSS saying it was against the rule of law, and that the council never shielded any judicial officer who has committed any misconduct, as claimed by the DSS.

The Nigerian Attorney General Malami, has however supported the raid said the SSS was merely discharging its constitutional function of investigation, adding that corruption is a threat to the security of any nation. (Premium Times/TV360 Nigeria)
