The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Mahmud Mohammed, has described the invasion of the homes of some Judges by men of the Department of State Services (DSS) as very saddening and deeply regrettable.

The CJN spoke on Monday morning at a valedictory court session held in honour of retiring Justice Suleiman Galadima of the Supreme Court.

Mohammed commended the Nigerian Bar Association for the step that it had so far taken on the matter.

His words, “My lords, invited guests, ladies and gentlemen, not to detract from this occasion, it is indeed very saddening and deeply regrettable, the distressing and unfortunate incident which occurred on Friday, October 7 and Saturday, October 8, 2016.

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

“Furthermore, I must express my sincere appreciation to the executive of the Nigerian Bar Association ably led by the President, Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN), and indeed all members of the legal profession for their prompt action and continued support.”
