Nollywood actor, John Okafor, better known as Mr Ibu, has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari’s action against the Nigerian judiciary as regards to the allegations of corruption and judicial misconduct leveled against some judges.
The comic actor, who appeared to have showed 100 per cent of his support to the recent raid on some judges, said “since Nigerian Judiciary failed to jail Buhari; let Buhari jail them.”
It would be recalled, few weeks ago, the Department of State Services (DSS), conducted a ‘sting operation’ on Nigerian top judges whom they arrested, alleging judicial misconduct and corruption.
The DSS, during separate operations carried out on October 7 and 8, had raided the homes and arrested two Justices of the Supreme Court, Sylvester Ngwuta and Iyang Okoro.
The other judges, whose homes were raided and arrested are Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court Abuja, Kabir Auta of the Kano High Court, Muazu Pindiga of Gombe High Court, Mohammed Tsamiya of the Court of Appeal, Ilorin, and the Chief Judge of Enugu State, I. A. Umezulike.
However, Mr Ibu took to his Facebook account to state his opinion on the matter.
He said: “I will support Buhari for his action against Nigeria Judiciary. when issue of Buhari’s certificate came up, No judge was serious to prosecute Buhari, when IPOB members were killed, no judge talked about it, when Nnamdi KANU was guiltless, no judge talked about it, When Dasuki was granted Bail even in ECOWAS Court, no Judge talked about it, when Shitte Muslims were killed in Kaduna, no judge talked about it, what about the killings in Nimbo and Agatu? No judge talked about it.
“Margaret was killed in kano while preaching, no judge talked about it, all the arrested Boko Haram members where released by Buhari, No judge talked about it.
“2015 general election? No judge talked about it.
“As Nigerian Judiciary failed to jail Buhari; let Buhari jail them, I give him my 100% Support on this one.”
