Nigeria’s secret police releases all detained judges on bail

The State Security Service (SSS) has released the seven judges, including two justices of the Supreme Court, who were arrested on suspicion of bribery and corruption last week. 

The agency sources have informed Premium Times about the development: “They were all released on bail yesterday (October 9) on self recognition. They reported this morning (October 10) and they have all gone back home.

They will be coming back tomorrow. And everything went very procedurally well and civil. They were released on bail on self recognition based on the fact that given their standing in the society, they cannot run away.

They were instructed that they should come back today by 10am. They did report for investigation this morning and they have gone back home. And the investigation continues and preparation to charge them to court.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians took to social media to express their dissapointment with the judiciary in the country. Some of them called out the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for the unprecedented action of the DSS and even demanded his impeachment.
