Judges Arrested By DSS Get Released On Bail
The seven judges, arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, have been released on bail.
Our correspondent learnt yesterday that they were released last night.
A source at the Supreme Court confirmed to our correspondent during a telephone interview that the judges had been allowed to go home.
DSS failed to arraign the seven judicial officers before a law court yesterday.
Journalist waited anxiously at the Magistrate Court in Life Camp and another Magistrate Court in Kubwa, Abuja, expecting that they would be arraigned.
At the Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday, all the judges adjourned the day’s proceedings in solidarity with their arrested colleagues.
According to a source, a particular judge had prepared to sit for the day but was told that the cases should be adjourned in view of the happenings in the judiciary.
The source said: “One of the justices was set for work this morning (yesterday), but was told to shelve the idea since the court is directly involved in the raid on judges’ house by agents of the DSS.”
