“These PDP bigwigs are said to have advised the justices to drag Amaechi into their arrest and investigation by the DSS. They believe doing so would muddle the waters, divert the media and public attention from the corruption allegations against them and make the whole arrest and investigations look like a political vendetta against the justices.

“Our findings indicate that they told the justices that the Buhari government is after them, wants to bring them down, and that they must drag Amaechi down as well.”

The APC alleged that the PDP chieftains deceived the justices to believe that Amaechi orchestrated their arrest and investigation.

The party claimed that Wike, Akpabio, Udom and Okowa are scared of Amaechi, and his closeness to President Muhammadu Buhari which is why they want to damage and destroy him politically.

Amaechi’s bribery scandal sparked up controversy as many Nigerians wondered why the president was still keeping him in his cabinet.

The Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere,demanded for the immediate resignation of Amaechi. The group asked Buhari to sack all those that have been indicted of corruption in his government.

The minister has since denied the allegations against him, saying the judge concocted the claim in order to politicize the issue of his arrest.
