Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has accused the Federal Government of planning to go after 200 Judges in Nigeria. Governor Wike made this claim during the central healing service of the Greater Evangelism World Crusade on Sunday, February 3rd in Port Harcourt.
He alleged that the APC-led Federal Government has marshalled out an onslaught to intimidate 200 Judges, especially those of the Federal Judiciary. He said that the Federal Government has collected the asset declaration forms of 200 Judges from the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) for the planned mass onslaught.
“I intercepted a discussion by a Minister of the Federal Executive Council where he was telling a gathering that they are happy that they have dealt with the Supreme Court. The Minister said that the next set would be the Court of Appeal Judges and the Federal High Court judges. The Minister said any judge that fails to cooperate will face trump up charges and compelled to resign.
“This APC Federal Government has gone to the Code of Conduct Bureau to get the asset declaration forms of 200 Judges. Any judge that fails to follow their evil plot, will be harassed with false allegations and persecution” he said
Speaking further, Governor Wike said
”The church should continually pray for the Federal Judiciary. The Judiciary in Nigeria is under siege. If anything happens to the judiciary, our democracy is in trouble. The Church needs to pray for the judges to remain strong in the face of intimidation and harassment.”
