Why I prevented judge’s arrest, by Wike

WikeRivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike said he stopped the arrest of Justice Abdullahi Liman of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, by the Department of State Services (DSS) to ensue the rule of law.

He stated this when a group, Non-Indigenes Without Borders led by
Mr. Emeka Onowu, visited him at the Government House, Port Harcourt yesterday.

Wike, on October 8 prevented attempts by the DSS and the police to arrest Justice Liman for alleged corrupt practices. He said his action was not to stop the security agencies from doing their job, but rather to ensure that the right process was followed.

The governor explained that he was not supporting any judge in the country found culpable of corrupt practices, but that it was wrong for security operatives to invade the residence of a judge in the night.
