DSS grants Judges bail based on self recognition


The Department of State Service granted bail to the arrested judges, Vanguard reports.

The judges, who were picked up Saturday morning, were released by the agency on Sunday.

An official of the agency revealed this to Vanguard.

“They were released on bail on self recognition based on the fact that given their standing in the society, they cannot run away. They were instructed that they should come back today by 10am. They did report for investigation this morning (yesterday) and they have gone back home. And the investigation continues in preparation to charge them to court.”

The judges were arrested for alleged corruption. Although the NBA says its a ploy by the FG to intimidate the judiciary. The President reiterated the DSS’ stance saying “corruption, not the Judiciary under attack”.
