Judge Under Probe Allegedly Stuffed Dollars In His Shoes

A judge who is under probe for allegedly collecting from a senator N30million bribe stuffed some of the cash, which was in United States dollars into his shoes and walked barefooted to his car.



The senator complained to the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) being led Prof. Itse Sagay.

Also yesterday, it was learnt that most of the nine arrested judges had petitions against them with the National Judicial Council (NJC).

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, is said to have the list of judges to be investigated in the last five months.
Although the list was shown to some legal authorities by the CJN, no action was taken by the NJC, a source claimed.

PACAC has about 50 petitions sent to it against some judges by some aggrieved Nigerians.

One of the said complaints came from a senator who alleged that a judge demanded about N50million from him to influence a case but he paid N30million.

The money was delivered to the Court of Appeal Justice in dollars.
But following the senator’s inability to pay the balance of N20million, the judge gave judgment against the senator, it was alleged.

A source said: “The senator told us that the judge asked for N50million but he could only pay N30million and lost the case for not meeting up with the balance.

“He said when the judge came at night to collect the bribe, he stuffed every available space and went to a ridiculous extent of stuffing some of the money in his shoes. The judge then decided to walk barefooted to his car.

“We have the complaint against the judge and the senator is ready to testify because the judge did not refund the N30million to date. The government is going to see to the logical conclusion of this case against the judge.”

Asked to name the judge, the source added: “The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), disclosed the name of the justice at a session with the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) to underscore why the bench must be rid of bad eggs. The NBA has been briefed, let them also talk.


“This is to show that the government is transparent about the whole process. It is not a witch-hunt at all.”
The highly-placed source gave insight into the arrest of nine judges and how the operation was conducted.

The judges are Supreme Court Justices Sylvester Ngwuta and Inyang Okoro; the suspended Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Ilorin Division, Justice Mohammed, Ladan Tsamiya, who was picked up in Sokoto; Justice Adeniyi Ademola( Federal High Court); the Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice I. A. Umezulike; Justice Kabiru Auta of Kano State High Court; Justice Muazu Pindiga (Gombe State High Court); Justice Bashir Sukola and Justice Ladan Manir, from the Kaduna State High Court.

The source added: “In fact, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed has had the list of some alleged corrupt judges in his possession in the last five months. The list emanated from his office and anti-corruption agencies. But the NJC did not do anything.

“About 60 per cent of the nine judges under probe have petitions against them before the NJC. The records are there. Nigerians should ask what has become of this petition.

“Take the case of the Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice I. A. Umezulike; he had more than three petitions against him. If the petitioner had not been steadfast, the Judge would not have been sanctioned by the NJC.
“The allegation of N500million bribe against Justice Pindiga was actually made a “dead-on-arrival” by a Petition Review Committee of the NJC.”
Unknown to most of the judges arrested, the Department of State Services(DSS) video-taped every detail.

The source added: “The DSS is ready to tender the video clips in court. In fact, some of the judges will be shocked by the professionalism of the security agency.“The clips have already been shown to a few lawyers to prove that due diligence was followed. We hope the court will allow the prosecution to show the clips during trial.

Well, we really need to be purge of the bad eggs in our judicial system, but I hope they go about it the right way, and not victimize innocent judges as a way of witch-hunting them for giving judgment against them.

If the DSS really go by the rules of a proper "sting operation" then all the guys will have cameras on them for tactical review and debriefing. So it would be wise for the judges to keep quiet as more lies will make it worse. Even the governor that showed up in the dead of the night when judges were being arrested but snores when communities were being razed to the ground deserves to be investigated.

I know that there is no law any where that says that a person cannot stuff his shoes or even "paent" with money. Oya defenders of the universe, gbera.

Stella, here's my problem with these overly sensational stories that the current government keeps churning out: if these allegations are true and backed by evidence, why are they not being presented in court already? Let the Federal Government, Attorney-General of the Federation et al stop insulting our sensitivities with these fancy tales; every sane Nigerian supports the drive to root out corruption. What we want to see is the concrete and demonstrable evidence of the allegedly corrupts act of everyone involved - from Dasuki to the judges. And for the naive among us who are quick to latch on to, and lap up, whatever ludicrous narrative the government dishes out, I hope you remember the way you feel when people make conclusions about you without hearing your side of the story... my two kobos.
