Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led Federal Government of planning to intimidate and lay false allegations against 200 judges, especially those of the federal judiciary.
Governor Wike made this accusation while speaking during the central healing service of the Greater Evangelism World Crusade in Port Harcourt on Sunday, February 3, 2019.
According to him, he personally intercepted strategic credible intelligence which revealed that a Federal Minister allegedly told a gathering that following the destabilization of the Supreme Court, the next target would be the Court of Appeal and Federal High Court.
The Governor said that the APC-led federal government has collected the asset declaration forms of 200 judges from the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) for the planned mass onslaught. He said:
“I intercepted a discussion by a minister of the Federal Executive Council, where he was telling a gathering that they are happy to have dealt with the Supreme Court. The minister said the next set would be the Court of Appeal judges and the Federal High Court judges. The minister said any judge who fails to cooperate will face trump up charges and compelled to resign.
“This APC federal government has gone to the CCB to get the asset declaration forms of 200 judges. Any judge who fails to follow their evil plot, will be harassed with false allegations and persecution.”
Governor Wike called on the church to pray for the federal judiciary to survive the deadly siege of the APC-led federal government.
