The media aide to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mr. Ahuraka Isah, has confirmed that two judges of the Supreme Court – Justices Sylvester Ngwuta and John Okoro – were arrested at their official residences in Abuja by men of the Department of State Service early hours of Saturday. The judges are said to be currently in the DSS custody in Abuja. Isah clarified that Justice Walter Onnoghen, the next in rank to the incumbent CJN, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, was not among the Justices of the apex court arrested as earlier reported. According to Isah, “What I can tell you for now is that Justices Ngwuta and Okoro were arrested early hours of today. We do not know the reasons for the arrest yet. Justice Onnoghen was not among those arrested.” The DSS operatives are said to have gone away with some documents found in the arrested judicial officers’ homes.
