Justice Odili: Nigeria’s democracy becoming unsafe under Buhari - SNF

Justice Odili: Nigeria’s democracy becoming unsafe under Buhari - SNF (Updated: 7 months ago)


The Southern Nigeria Frontier (SNF) says the invasion of Justice Mary Odili’s residence shows that the country’s democracy under President Muhammadu Buhari is becoming unsafe.

A statement on Monday by the spokesman, Olufemi Lawson condemned the Gestapo action against the Supreme Court Justice.

SNF insists that “available evidence” indicts the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, a Senior Advocate.

The body condemned the executive recklessness and intimidation of the judiciary, “a conduct now synonymous with the Buhari regime”.

Lawson said despite Malami’s denial, the incident was another move “to denigrate and ridicule the judiciary just like what was done to former Chief Justice, Justice Walter Onoghen”.

SNF wondered how Odili’s home should be mistaken for an ordinary Abuja residence, where “Illegal activities” are supposedly taking place.

“This is unacceptable. There is no doubt that the continued attack on the institutions of our democracy, particularly the judiciary, is a descent into a deeper dictatorship.

“If Supreme Court judges can be under this manner of assault and abuse of naked power, what would be the fate of the everyday citizens in Nigeria?”

Lawson urged citizens and the international community to pay attention to the abuse of power and threat to democracy.

“It is obvious that democracy in Nigeria is becoming unsafe in the hands of Buhari’s government”, the statement added.
