Nevertheless, the Nation reporters have managed to get a comment from the insider who said: “We ended the meeting today after exhaustively considering the unfortunate incident involving some of our judges.

Members strongly condemned it. We also agreed on the successor to the outgoing CJN, and have resolved to allow the tradition remain.  

It was generally agreed that the most senior Justice of the Supreme Court should succeed my lord, Justice Mohammed, who is scheduled to quit the bench on November 10.”

Recall that Justice Mahmud Mohammed, the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), had promised on Monday to adress the issue of the arrest at the NJC meeting.

He had said: “It is indeed very saddening and deeply regrettable, the distressing and unfortunate incident, which occurred on Friday, 7th October and Saturday 8th October, 2016.

However, I must ask all Nigerians to remain calm and prayerful, as an emergency meeting of the National Judicial Council (NJC) will take place tomorrow, will comprehensively look into the matter.”

Meanwhile, six more judges have been found wanted by the Department of State Services (DSS). So far, the DSS officials have raided a palatial residence of one of the judges and found a fleet of exotic 15 cars.
