It said that when the judge was approached for due search to be conducted, “he in concert with the State Governor, Nyesom Wike mobilized thugs against the Service team.

“The team restrained itself in the face of unbridled provocative activities by those brought in by the Governor. Unfortunately, the Judge and Governor also engaged the tacit support of a sister security agency.”

The statement further claimed that the Service surveillance team noticed that upon frustrating the operation, the Judge with the active support of the Governor craftily moved the money to an unknown location which the Service is currently making effort to unravel.

Meanwhile, Wike had accused the security team of manhandling him, wondering why the team chose 1 am to storm the judge’s residence, stating that all he expected the security men to have done was to invite the judge and if he had ignored the invitation then other legal steps should have been taken.

The governor explained that he never bothered to know the name of the judge but only had to come out to stop the attempted abduction of the judge because as the Chief Security Officer of the state he would not allow such lawlessness in his state

According to Wike, “What has happened this night is unfortunate. Even in military government it has never happened like this , you listen to people. That is why we are here. I said not under my watch will I allow this type of activity take place.

“The DSS, Police they cocked their guns and said they will shoot me. And I told them I have never heard this type of thing happen before. Again this is to show that more of this will come.”

  4. This Judge was arrested by FBI in America and heaven did not fall for a less crime, but here all attempt to bring them to justice would be frustrated… ATLANTA (CBS/AP) A well-known federal judge was released on a $50,000 bond Monday after he was busted by an undercover agent for allegedly using cocaine, marijuana and other illegal drugs with an Atlanta stripper. Senior U.S. District Judge Jack T. Camp faces drug and firearms charges for his arrest Friday in which he unwittingly handed over $160 to an undercover law enforcement agent for cocaine and Roxycodone, a narcotic plain reliever that he supposedly intended to use with the exotic dancer. Authorities also seized two guns from the front seat of the judge’s vehicle during his arrest, authorities said in a court document released Monday. Camp, 67, hired four defense attorneys over the weekend to represent him and said little during his brief hearing Monday though his attorney, William Morrison, claimed he was in “good spirits.” According to Morrison, the judge intends to plead not guilty. Camp’s arrest set up an unusual domino effect in the federal courthouse. The district’s federal judges all disqualified themselves, so Magistrate Judge Charles S. Coody of Alabama was brought in to hear the case. Federal prosecutors from Washington also flew in to handle the government’s arguments. According to court records Camp met the undercover agent, who recently began cooperating with the FBI, at the Goldrush Showbar in Atlanta in early 2010. Soon after, he reportedly began paying her for sex and bought cocaine from her “at $40 to $50 a pop,” state the records. In June 2010, Camp followed the informant to a drug dealer in the Atlanta area to buy Roxycodone. He was also recorded in a wiretapped telephone call on Sept. 28 talking with her about meeting over the weekend to split more pills and cocaine with her, according to the charges. When the informant told the judge she was worried about his safety prior to the bust Friday, the judge apparently replied, “I not only have my little pistol, I’ve got my big pistol so, uh, we’ll take care of any problems that come up,” according to the affidavit. Camp faces four drug-related charges and one count of possessing firearms while illegally using drugs. He has presided over several high-profile drug cases, including the May 2009 sentencing on prescription- related charges of the doctor for a professional wrestler who killed himself, his wife and their 7-year-old son. .
