Nigeria has returned to military era – Afenifere decries arrest of judges | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, lawyers and some human rights groups have strongly kicked against the recent invasion of the homes of judges and the arrest of over four of them by the Department of State Services.



According to them, the actions of the DSS showed that Nigeria had returned to the harsh military era, including the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari in 1984.



The National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, while reacting to the development said, “It is executive lawlessness and usurpation of investigative functions of the judicial arm of government. It was not done with the authority of the National Judicial Council as stipulated in our constitution.

“We are certainly descending into a deeper dictatorship trajectory than we have ever witnessed in our polity even during military interregnum.

“If judges can come under this raw show of naked power, what would be the fate of the everyday citizens? This is a new low never witnessed in our country and all lovers of justice, democracy and decency must condemn this barbaric act.”

  1. Are corrupt judges above the law? So if other corrupt people can be arrested why can't they be?

  2. You question is unnecessary. These juges are public officers. If dss has found anything against them they should have adopted a more civilize way of inviting in the first place. We are in democracy not a military regime

  10. What will everyone here say if it is a poor man that was arrested in that way?

    Has the arrest of the poor masses different from that?

    These same Judges sit and judge the poor masses with defending them.

    Until some Nigerian stop fighting for these so called leaders and equate themselves with the leaders.

    WAKE UP NIGERIAN
