Justice John Inyang Okoro, one of the supreme Court judges being probed by the DSS says he’s in this situation because he refused to do the bidding of the Transport Minister, Chibuike Amaechi.
Guardian reports that the judge expressed this in a letter to the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), dated October 17.
He says Amaechi tried to influence him into compromising the outcome of election petitions in Akwa Ibom, Abia and Rivers states at the Supreme Court.
Amaechi in his reaction through his media aide, David Iyofo, said;
“This accusation from Justice Okoro against Amaechi is a figment of his imagination, concocted to obfuscate and politicize the real issues for his arrest and DSS investigation of allegations of corruption against him”.
