Buhari, DSS Persecuting Us Because We Failed To Convict Their Enemies – Judges

Some of the Judges that were recently raided and arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS)  have started opening up why the FG and DSS is after their lives. 

Two of them Justice Ademola Adeniyi and Nnamdi Dimgba who spoke separately to newsmen said that they were planning to file a suit against the Service for infringing on their Fundamental Human Rights.

It could be recalled that both Judges had in the past made orders that the DSS ignored. Justice Ademola ordered the release of the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOP, Nnamdi Kanu and also granted bail to the former National Security Adviser, NSA, to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Sambo Dasuki on self recognition.

Justice Dimgba on the other hand granted bail to a former member of arms probe panel which was constituted by the Federal Government, Air Commander Umar Mohammed (retd).

Narrating his ordeal, Justice Dimgba said that his court had been under the radar of DSS since he delivered judgement against them. In his word, my registrar had been under pressure to give DSS any document that could implicate me in my official duties.

On what happened on the day DSS invaded his official residence, Dimgba said that masked DSS numbering over 20 operatives subjected him and his household to harassment and intimidation. He further stated that his residence was ransacked without search warrant. 

He alleged that the DSS later made away with his work bag containing a number of case files. Dimgba insisted that his ordeal has everything to do with the judgment he delivered against the DSS.

On the part of Justice Ademola, he accused the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF and Minister of Justice, Justice Abubakar Malami of being behind his predicament. He explained that Malami instigated his arrest to take his pound of flesh owing to a clash they had in the past when the AGF was still a practising lawyer in Kano.

Ademola who at that time was a Judge of the Federal High Court, Kano Division said he had reported Malami to the NJC for engaging in professional misconduct. He stated that it took the intervention of Kano of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA to save the AGF, Malami from being debarred.

Ademoa decried the level of harassment and intimidation he suffered in the hands of the DSS.
