It was in the early hours of Saturday morning, the 8th of October, that the DSS broke into the houses of some judges, maltreated, arrested and at the same time carted away some of their vital documents which has to do with cases that are of interest to dictator Muhammadu Buhari. It would be an understatement to say that Buhari is a tyrant, because he is a replica of the devil himself.
It is quite disheartening that this is happening in a supposed democratic setting. It confirms, the fact that Muhammadu Buhari cannot change from being a dictator that he naturally is.
What matters most in this whole judicial quagmire are the reasons behind the rough-handling and humiliation of these judges. If the reason for their inhumane arrest is purely on the basis of “fighting corruption” as Buhari claimed, then why is the “bias” John Tsoho not arrested? Why is Justice John Tsoho walking freely after all the shame he brought to the Nigerian judiciary before the international community while presiding over Nnamdi Kanu’s case? Why is John Tsoho not among those judges rampaged by the DSS on the order of Muhammadu Buhari? Could it be because he worked for Buhari to remand Nnamdi Kanu in prison? Could it be because Buhari is trying to fulfill his promise of making him the Chief Justice of Nigeria? Well, these questions would defintely be answered as event unfolds.

Moreover, more incriminating facts have been gathered, regarding the main reasons why some of these judges were humiliated in such an inhumane, despicable and undemocratic manner, especially Justice Ademola Adeniyi who is still detention having released the others.
It is on good record that Justice Ademola Adeniyi ordered the immediate and unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu; the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, on 17th December 2015. He also ordered thrice that Dasuki be released. These judgments did not go down well with Buhari and his government. They disobeyed his orders and concocted new charges to re-arrest Dasuki and continue to detain him, just like they did in Kanu’s case.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court in Abuja also in May 26, 2016 dismissed Buhari’s preliminary objection in a suit filed by an Abuja-based legal practitioner Mr. Nnamdi Nwokocha-Ahaaiwe concerning Buhari’s non-submission of his WAEC certificate during the 2015 elections that saw him fraudulently ascend to power as Nigeria’s President.

It will shock you to know that; only on Friday the 7th of October 2016 Justice Ademola issued two rulings in a case filed against the DSS by two persons whose fundamental human rights were ruthlessly abused because they were illegally detained by the same DSS. As compensation to the complainants, Ademola awarded the sum of N20million and N10million respectively against the government.
Let it also be known that what necessited the midnight raid and illegal arrest of Justice Ademola and other reputable judges has no connection with corruption or election results but rather the fact that Nnamdi Kanu filed a contempt of court proceedings against the Buhari regime which as the presiding judge in the original case he(Ademola) was legally bound to hear in his court. Nnamdi Kanu is the sole target here.
These are the shielded reasons why Dictator Muhammadu Buhari wants Justice Ademola out of his way so that he can employ the services of corrupt and biased judges in the mold and personality of Justice John Tsoho.

The bias Justice Tsoho is walking free today simply because he played and acted Buhari's script to the latter until he was unceremoniously forced out of the case after an application was brought against him before the Chief Justice of the federation. John Tsoho committed perjury on 7th March 2016, by reversing himself on an appeal which he earlier dismissed on February 19th 2016, against Nnamdi Kanu, after ironically remanding Nnamdi Kanu in prison on 29th January 2016, with three baseless reasons, which are exactly the statements made by Muhammadu Buhari during his maiden presidential media chat on 30th December 2015.
I must say here with every equivocation that if the National Judicial Council (NJC), Chief Justice of Nigeria (Mahmud Mohammed) and the Attorney General of Nigeria (Abubakar Malami) fails to eject John Tsoho from the Nigerian Judiciary, and ensure the release of Nnamdi Kanu, the recent humiliation of judges and assault on the third realm of the supposed independence arm of government will be a preamble to a bad omen that is about to befall the judiciary in the nearest future.
Justice Ademola is going through this excruciating experience simply because he is an incorruptible judge. Therefore, we are calling on the international community to take note, call to order and checkmate Buhari's excesses in his so called fight against Judicial corruption which is absurdly targetted at intimidating upright Judges into coercively doing his bidding and to unjustly jail Nnamdi Kanu.
