Two more judges were reportedly arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services on Wednesday, bringing the number of judges so far arrested to 9.

Justices Bashir Sukola and Ladan Manir of the Kaduna State High Court were reportedly picked up in Kaduna and subsequently taken to the DSS Headquarters in Abuja at about 8.30pm yesterday.

The DSS had on Saturday raided the residences of seven justices, including two from the Supreme court, in an operation described by the presidency as a “surgical operation against some judicial officers specifically targeted at corruption and not at d judiciary as an institution.”
