Your host (Barrister) Amaechi Anthony Isoh: (Acib; LLB, LLM),

DSS Vs Judiciary
As controversy trailing the raid and arrest of judges’ rages; we must separate sentiments and emotions from legal issues. In theory, the law allow anybody to arrest anyone committing crime. So, DSS has not breached the law in arresting erring judges.
However, one would expect the DSS to send the evidence of wrong doings of the Judges to NJC which has the statutory powers to discipline erring Judges. Their failure in that respect has made them victim of the perception in the mind of ordinary Nigeria, that their action is intimidation of the judiciary by the executive.
Let’s shield our swords and tell ourselves the honest truth. No one is above the law. We must take the war against corruption to any suspect anytime anywhere.
