Minister of Transportation, Mr. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, on Tuesday night denied ever trying to bribe Supreme Court Justice Inyang Okoro, as alleged earlier in the day by the embattled judge in a letter to the National Judicial Council (NJC).

A press statement issued on by Amaechi’s Media Office said it was not true that the Department of State Service (DSS) recently raided Justice Okoro’s home due to the judge’s refusal to be bought out by Mr. Amaechi to rule in favour of All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Umana Umana in the Akwa Ibom governorship case.

The statement reads: “This accusation from Justice Okoro against Amaechi is a figment of his imagination, concocted to obfuscate and politicise the real issues for his arrest and DSS investigation of allegations of corruption against him. The claims by Justice Okoro against Amaechi are blatant lies, bereft of any iota of truth or even logic. Amaechi did not, and has never approached Justice Okoro in respect of the cases Okoro mentioned or any other case. This is a cheap attempt, albeit, political move to drag the name of Amaechi into something he knows nothing about. Justice Okoro should face his issues and leave Amaechi out of it.  He will be hearing from our lawyers.”
