The presidency says the judiciary is not cooperating in its anti-corruption war. This is coming barely a day after the National Judicial Council, NJC, recalled six judges accused of bribery.
By taking the action at the time it did, the presidency feels the NJC is trying to protect the suspected judges from prosecution.
Special Assistant to the President on prosecution, Okoi Obono-Obla, made the allegations while reacting to the decision of the council.
The NJC, on Saturday, recalled Justice Adeniyi Ademola, whose discharge by a Federal High Court had been challenged at the appeal court and five others, whose trials are yet to begin in earnest.
