"OGA IS NOT HAPPY": Nnamdi Kanu in danger as Nigerian judges reveals how Buhari intimidates and manipulates the judiciary

"OGA IS NOT HAPPY":  Nnamdi Kanu in danger as Nigerian judges reveals how Buhari intimidates and manipulates the judiciary

By Paul Ihechi Alagba
For Family Writers

Hopes of Nnamdi Kanu getting any form of justice from the Nigerian judiciary may have been trashed completely as embattled Senior judges of the Supreme Court and High Court of Nigeria makes shocking revelations on how  President Muhammadu Buhari and key members of his cabinet influences judicial pronouncements and outcome of judgments, through mounting of intense pressures, and tip toeing to the homes of judges to offer bribes and launch executive threats where necessary, in desperation for a favourable judgemental outcome.

The two judges of the Supreme Court, Justice Inyang Okoro and Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, who have recently in their respective letters to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mahmud Mohammed, laid bay their deep dark secret encounters with several members of President Buhari's political party, the All Progressive Congress APC, which included some notable figures among Buhari Ministers such as the incumbent Transportation Minister, Mr. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi and the Minister of Science and Technology, Mr. Ogbonnaya Onu.

The letters also revealed the despotic role played by SSS officials during the infamous crackdown on several judges in the country which lasted from Friday October 7, through Saturday October 8, 2016.
   "The DSS operatives informed me that their Director-General wanted to see me that night.

“I requested to visit their office upon the break of the day, but they refused. In view of the presence of the heavily armed men, who accompanied them and who were pointing their gun at me from all angles, I had no choice than to follow them to their office that night.

“I was detained by them in their office till Sunday, 9th October, 2016 and upon your Lordship’s intervention that Sunday, they released me in the evening of that Sunday," Justice Inyang Okoro narrates the ordeal that surrounded his arrest and detention.

  ”My Lord, I strongly believe that this my travail is not unconnected with the verbal report I made to you on 1st February, 2016 about the visit to my official residence by HE, Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Rivers State and now Minister of Transportation.

“In that report, I told you My Lord, that Mr. Amaechi said that the President of Nigeria and the All Progressives Congress mandated him to inform me that they must win their election appeals in respect of Rivers State, Akwa Ibom State and Abia State at all costs.
“For Akwa Ibom State, he alleged that he sponsored Mr. Umana Umana, candidate of All Progressives Congress for that election and that if he lost Akwa Ibom appeal, he would have lost a fortune.

“Mr. Amaechi also said that he had already visited you and that you had agreed to make me a member of the panel that would hear the appeals.
“He further told me that Mr. Umana would be paying me millions of naira monthly if I co-operated with them. My response, as I told you on that date was that it does not lie within my power to grant his request and that I would do all within my power not to be in the panel for Akwa Ibom State. My Lord graciously left me out of the panel for Akwa Ibom State.

“That notwithstanding, the All Progressives Congress in Akwa Ibom State, which lost the appeal at the Supreme Court, believe that my presence in the Supreme Court made them to lose the appeal." Justice Okoro stated in his letter.

Similarly, barely three days after the outburst of Justin Okoro, another explosive letter from his colleague, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta to the CJN surfaced with astonishing revelations also indicting Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi and other APC Chieftains of desperate attempts to influence judicial proceedings, with the most notable remark being the alleged "OGA IS NOT HAPPY" statement credited to Amaechi, in which he defined President Buhari as the masterminder of the intended judicial conquest.

    "They took me away in their vehicle but before they drove away they ordered my housemaid to get in and lock the house and not to ever come out or let anyone into the house. It was when I saw DSS in the premises into which they drove me that I realized my invaders were agents of a Federal Government Department. Prior to getting into the premises I thought that the invaders were even armed robbers or kidnappers, more so when I was not questioned by anyone about anything." the honourable Chief Justice stated.

  Continuing he said- "Then I became much more disturbed not only for myself but for the future of this great Nation, Nigeria. I could not convince myself that any agency of the Federal Government, in a democratic setting, could for any undisclosed reason violate the rights of a Nigerian citizen, a Judicial Officer and Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, for that matter with such impunity. I thought that the democratic government had been overthrown and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) abolished or suspended."

"Then the next phase of the ordeal started. I was taken to a room where I met my learned brother, Hon. Justice John Inyang Okoro, JSC. He looked spent and so were other Judicial Officers both serving, sacked and retired. No one told me anything or asked me any question till late in the night when they drove from over one hour to a place they called villa. They took Justice Okoro and myself into a room that contained only a bed with a discarded, stained old mattress and both of us had to share it for the night. There was no towel, no soap and worst of all there was no toilet paper. We slept in our clothes, went under the tap and used our handkerchiefs in place of towels."

According to the judge, "My present plight started sometime between 2013 and 2014. I represented the then Chief Justice of Nigeria in an event organised in the International Conference Centre. Hon. Rotimi Amaechi came in late and sat next to me at the high table. He introduced himself to me and we exchanged contacts. A few weeks after, Fayose’s case was determined in the Court of Appeal. Amaechi called me by 6.45 am. He said he had come to see me but was told I had left for my office. When he said he would return in the evening, I demanded to know what he wanted but he would not tell me. He did not come that evening but came the following morning when I was already prepared to go to work. He begged me to ensure that Fayose’s election was set aside and another election ordered for his friend Fayemi to contest. I told him I would not help him and that even if I am on the panel I have only my one vote.

"After the Rivers State Governorship election was determined by the Court of Appeal, he called to tell me his ears were full and he would like to tell me what he heard. I told him I was out of Abuja at the time. On my return he came in the evening and even before he sat down he barked “You have seen Wike”. I asked him whether that was a question or a statement. Then he made a call and asked me to speak with someone. The man he called said he was a DSS man. We exchanged greetings and I handed the phone to him. Next, he said “Oga is not happy”. I asked him who is the unhappy “Oga” and he answered “Buhari”. I retorted “go and talk to his wife”. He got very angry, and left, remarking “we shall see” several times." Justice Ngwuta's letter revealed.

Meanwhile, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, a judge of the Federal High Court Abuja who was among the victims of the SSS crackdown highlighted in his own letter that his rulings in the case of IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki are what has infuriated the Aso Rock Seat of Power, leading to his heart-rending predicament.

“From the time of my arrival at the DSS office, at about 6:45am on 8/10/2016, I was not told what my crime was for over 24 hours till the evening of 9/10/2016.

“A DSS officiall finally informed me that my arrest were based on these three allegations; petition of Hon. Jenkins Duvie dated 4th of April 2016 to the National Judicial Council (NJC); granting bail to Col. Sambo Dasuki and the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu; and using my office to secure my wife’s appointment as the head of civil service, through Senator Bola Tinubu”, Justice Ademola's letter read.

Meanwhile, Family Writers Intelligence has revealed that with President Buhari's relative, Hon. Justice Binta Nyako, now standing in replacement of Justice John Tsoho, as judge handling Nnamdi Kanu's trial, there is every possibilty that Mrs Nyako will follow the footstep of her predecessor, John Tsoho to please the terrifying Nigerian government, by ensuring that the legal team of Nnamdi Kanu are continuously frustrated and the Biafra leader sent to jail.

   The intelligence report advised that there is need for Biafrans and Nnamdi Kanu's legal team to launch more vibrant international campaign and processes in order to put an end to the incarceration the Biafra leader by the Nigerian government, as it is now becoming indisputable that President Buhari's administration has instituted a devastating state-sponsored terrorism and tyranny against the Judiciary and their political enemies.
