As Usual...SANs Are Condemning Arrests of "Corrupt" Judges

The SANs who go to court to defend looters, "pay" for perpetual injunction, get very questionable injunctions to frustrate cases involving men and women who have become Billionaires overnight in Nigeria, but will never go out to fight for the rights of ordinary Nigerians, are at it again.

They are now up in arms, the judges some of them are giving "bribe" have been arrested.

Here's how Mike Ozekhome (SAN) reacted to arrest and recovery of Millions from Judges:
I am not surprised. I am rather surprised that some Nigerians are still surprised. Some of us warned, wrote, preached and talked. But, we were ignored due to political partisanship. A leopard cannot change its spots. It started with political opponents and the opposition. Some of us cried out. Then, they moved against some very senior and well-respected lawyers. Some clapped. They said it was anti-corruption. We cried out. It extended quickly to the National Assembly, another arm of government. Many described the government as tough, no-nonsense and anti-corruption-inclined. Some of us warned. Now, it is the judiciary. Up to the very apex court of the land, the Supreme Court, has been targeted and is now being intimidated and humiliated.

Virtually all the judges are southerners. My prediction is that the media will be the next. The recent onslaught against the judiciary signals great danger to our democracy, freedom, human rights, independence of the judiciary and the doctrine of separation of powers as espoused in 1748 by the great French philosopher, Baron De Montesquieu.

We are supposed to be operating a constitutional democracy, not military dictatorship or tyrannical absolutism. Governor Wike was almost shot dead by fully armed DSS operatives. His “offence” was that he came to rescue a Federal High Court judge who was being abducted. Other serving judges, who would ordinarily respond to a mere phone call, are being humiliated and rounded up in the ungodly hours of the night, like common criminals.

- Nigeria needs thorough cleansing!

why did kidnappers release this polluted lawyer of a man alive sef? if I may ask; the judge that was handed over to the police for immediate prosecution is from which part of the country? & in which part of the country where election & criminal cases of fraud were justices upturned? this man is lousy both in speech & in brain.

Those noise making SANs are lucky that Buhari is no longer a military ruler, they would have been in prison by now.

The members of the Stealing Association of Nigeria (SANs) hide under the No Bars Association (NBA) to perpetuate corruption in the land.
EFCC needs to concentrate on them first, call it stereotyping or whatever, the country needs healing.

They travel on a regular basis to stash money abroad for themselves and on behalf of their treasury looting clients.
