Corruption: CJN writes Buhari over allegations against judges

According to reports, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Muhammed, has formally written to President Muhammadu Buhari on the decision of the NJC on the cases of misconduct established against some judges, according to report.


A top source in the Presidency said on the condition of anonymity on Tuesday that Buhari received the communication on Monday.

Although the communication came at a time of outrage on the arrests of some judges by officials of the DSS, the source said the arrests and the raids on the judges’ homes were not part of the letter.

The source added, “As a matter of fact, two issues were included in the communication. The first was the issue of the judge, who was said to have collected a N200m bribe.

“The other was a comprehensive report of the National Judicial Council on some judges that were sanctioned for misconduct.

“The issue of the raids on the homes of some judges and their arrests were not contained in the communication.”

The source suspected that since the letter was received on Monday, it could have been prepared before the weekend incident.

Meanwhile, the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, met briefly with Buhari on Tuesday.

The agenda of the meeting, described as a routine one, was not made public.

Daura was also sighted joining worshippers for prayer at a mosque located beside the President’s office before leaving the Presidential Villa.

5 Comments on Corruption: CJN writes Buhari over allegations against judges

  1. Corruption is not allow


  2. Buhari don’t mind them clear corruption out of our country


  3. Too late to cry when the head is already cut off. The mission was to replace 2 igbo supreme court judges with northern judges to make sure CJN continue to be northerner for life.


  4. Who cares who the chief judge is, all Nigerians need is justice. The system under Buhari is on course. No more business as usual. Period.


  5. CJN should relax and allow justice to prevail. He should rather advise his colleagues to desist and flee from bribery, corruption and unlawful acquisition of wealth.

    PMB should not only go after the corrupt judges but also the corrupt and devilish legislators, civil servants, military men etc.

    There must be no place for corruption in our dear Nigeria.

    God bless Nigeria.
