Iconic jurists speak... ‘Even those in the grave’

Sat Mar 7th, 2020 - Abuja (FCT)

It was the doubt over the January 14 judgment that prompted Chief Emeka Ihedioha, and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to seek a review, which was equally dismissed last Tuesday.

Another dent on the image of the jurists was the persistent allegation of corruption, which was perceived to have undermined dispensation of justice.
Cases in point include the raid of the homes of some Justices of the Supreme Court in Abuja, Judges of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt and Abuja and State High Court Judges in Gombe and Kaduna states on account of alleged corruption on October 7, 2016, between the hours of 10.00p.m and the wee hours of the next day, by the Department of State Services (DSS).
