Nigeria Under Buhari have no respect for rule of Law, Anybody can be arrested anytime - Wike
|Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike|
Wike's statement came on the heels of the arrested Supreme Court Judges, saying that they were intimidated and arrested like common criminals from their homes at odd hours of the night.
The governor said: “I was afraid to come out for this programme when I heard that all the security heads in this state came for the programme.
“So, I told my orderly to pack some of my things into a bag that I may not return because they may arrest me from there.
“My orderly asked, but you have immunity, I told him that there couldn’t be immunity in Nigeria when people are arrested anyhow. We don’t respect the rule of law. Anybody can be arrested at anytime”, the governor stated.
Speaking further, Wike faulted the anti-corrupt war of the Federal Government saying, “The fight against corruption in the country undermines development. It serves no useful purpose”.
He flayed the Nigerian Judicial Council (NJC) and Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on their decision supporting the stepping down of the embattled judges arrested by operatives of Department of State Security (DSS) on alleged corrupt practices.
