'Rotimi Amaechi Came To Bribe Me' – Supreme Court's Justice Inyang Okoro

Since the name of Peter Odili, his wife Justice Mary Odili and Governor Nyesom Wike came up in the bribe-for-judgement saga that is rocking the highest court in the land, I was expecting know that it's a matter of time before the name of Rotimi Amaechi is added. I was right.

Rivers State is funny place where people don't defend themselves, they always drag others along.

One of the Supreme Court Justices arrested by DSS, Justice John Inyang Okoro, has accused former Governor of Rivers State and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amachi of having attempted to bribe him over three election petitions matters that were resolved earlier this year.

In a letter addressed to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Okoro narrated his ordeal in the hands of DSS on the night of Friday October 7th and early morning of Saturday October 8th.

He said Rotimi Amaechi came to his house to inform him that President Mohammadu Buhari and the APC asked to tell him that they must win their cases in three states - Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Abia.

The judge said Amaechi told him that he sponsored Umana Umana, the candidate of the APC in the Akwa Ibom state governorship election. He alleged that Amaechi promised him a monthly pay from Umana once the candidate is declared the winner of the election by the Supreme Court.

The part of the letter where the Supreme Court judge made these allegations appeared like a mere reminder to the CJN. Justice Inyang deployed lines like “My Lord will recall the verbal report I made to you on...

See the letters Justice Okoro wrote below:




This saga is sure getting interesting...Expecting more claims and counter claims from all the parties.

The judiciary sure stinks. Instead of this old fool to go clear his name he is now making it clearer that justice remains for highest bidders, friends and families.
Shame on the judiciary.

Tender your evidence. We don't need any verbal allegations at this stage of Nigeria.
