The seven senior judges arrested were still in custody and would be arraigned in court any moment.

The act which is geenrating tension and intense discussion within the political space forced the presdiency tomake an official reaction on Sunday, saying the arrest of seven senior judges by the State Security Service, SSS, was an assault on corruption and not on the judiciary.

The president in a statement by his media adviser, Garba Shehu, described the raids as ‘surgical’ saying due process was followed in the arrests.
