Former Imo State Governor Ikedi Ohakim has threatened to protest naked over the alleged non-payment of judges in the state.
Ohakim, speaking to journalists in his home in Owerri, said judges in the state are being owed salaries of 16 months.
The former governor added that the state government also failed to pay a certain ₦7 billion it was ordered by courts to pay.
He said he was, through the media, informing the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, of his planned protest which will take him along Wethdral Road, Owerri. He said:
A governor is not bigger than the judiciary. For one year and four months, no judge in Imo State has received a kobo as salary. They are being intimidated, as some are often called into a room and warned.
Unfortunately, nobody wants to speak for these judges. But, I want to congratulate the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for instituting legal action against Okorocha’s administration on the issue.
