“It is indeed very saddening and deeply regrettable, the distressing and unfortunate incident which occurred on Friday October 7 and Saturday, October 8.

However, I must ask all Nigerians to remain calm and prayerful, as an emergency meeting of the National Judicial Council, which will take place tomorrow, will comprehensively look into the matter

Furthermore, I must express my sincere appreciation to the executive of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) ably led by the President, Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN), and indeed, all members of the legal profession,’’ he said

The CJN said he was delighted by the prompt action and continued support of members of the legal profession.

    which money? where is the money? where is the proof of the money?.Thesame fictitious money that has been discovered from looters?.where is it? the last we heard the govt said it is with cbn, cbn denied and they said they would resolve the matter.we havent heard anything since then.They said it will be used to fund the next budget, deliberation of the budget has started yet no mention of the billions of dollars gotten.To state clearly i dont save money in Naira, and i have never done it since i was in SS2 years if people come to my house they would say i am a looter abi?.Also judges earn more that generals in Nigeria,so if the snake farmer GEN buratai can “claim” to save millions from his civil servant salary of dollars to buy houses in Dubai and to have savings why cant judges have thesame ? the total of what they had wasn’t up to buratais monies and assets.Nigeria is corrupt, judges are corrupt, doctors are corrupt, buhari is currupt, teachers are corrupt. concrete steps should be made to address this problem not cosmetic and foolish steps that will set us back to the stone age.
