The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Muhammed, has formally written to President Muhammadu Buhari on the decision of the NJC on the cases of misconduct established against some judges, The PUNCH has learnt.

A top source in the Presidency told one of our correspondents on the condition of anonymity on Tuesday that Buhari received the communication on Monday.

Although the communication came at a time of outrage on the arrests of some judges by officials of the DSS, the source said the arrests and the raids on the judges’ homes were not part of the letter.

The source added, “As a matter of fact, two issues were included in the communication. The first was the issue of the judge, who was said to have collected a N200m bribe.

“The other was a comprehensive report of the National Judicial Council on some judges that were sanctioned for misconduct.

“The issue of the raids on the homes of some judges and their arrests were not contained in the communication.”

The source suspected that since the letter was received on Monday, it could have been prepared before the weekend incident.

Meanwhile, the Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, met briefly with Buhari on Tuesday.
