Abuja: Group wants corrupt Judges to go on leave


Hundreds of protesters yesterday stormed the Supreme Court and National Assembly complexes in Abuja asking all judges arrested by the DSS to step aside pending outcome of their trials in court.

The protesters under the Forum of Non-Governmental Organizations in Nigeria (FONGON) carried placards with various inscriptions while accusing the NJC of ‘double-face’ and encouraging corruption.

“Judicial corruption is worse than economic corruption. A judge that freed a corrupt person or a thief after being compromised is only asking the thief to go and continue stealing. From year 2000 till date about 73 judges have been suspended by the NJC but none of them has been prosecuted all these years, what kind of double standard is this?”  Badmus said.
