JUST IN: Senate Invites Judges Raided By DSS

The Senate has decided to probe the raid on the houses of some judges and their arrests by the Department of State Services.
The Senate, which had earlier condemned the action, on Wednesday decided to invite the affected judges for further investigation into the matter.

The judges are Justice John Okoro and Justice Sylvester Nguta of the Supreme Court; Justice Namdi Dimgba and Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja; Kabiru Auta, FHC, Kano; Muazu Pindiga, FHC, Gombe; and a former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Innocent Umezulike.

The judges are to appear before the Senate Committee on Judiciary,

The Chairman of the committee, Senator David Umaru, made the probe known during the plenary on Wednesday.

He said the panel would work on the report by the National Judicial Council on the issue.

Operatives of the DSS had invaded the homes of the judges between the late hours of October 7 and early hours of October 8, 2016, and arrested them for alleged corruption.
