The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has alleged that the Federal Government has concluded plans to witch-hunt 200 Judges.
Governor Wike said that strategic credible intelligence intercepted by him revealed that a Federal Minister told a gathering that following the destabilization of the Supreme Court, the next target will be the Court of Appeal and Federal High Court.
Speaking during the central healing service of the Greater Evangelism World Crusade on Sunday in Port Harcourt, Governor Wike said that the APC Federal Government has collected the asset declaration forms of 200 Judges from the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB for the planned mass onslaught.
The governor noted that the APC Federal Government will allegedly generate several false allegations to compel upright judges to resign from the bench.
Governor Wike called on the Church to pray for the Federal Judiciary to survive the deadly siege of the APC Federal Government.
According to him, “I intercepted a discussion by a Minister of the Federal Executive Council where he was telling a gathering that they are happy that they have dealt with the Supreme Court. The Minister said that the next set would be the Court of Appeal Judges and the Federal High Court judges. The Minister said any judge that fails to cooperate will face trump up charges and compelled to resign .
“This APC Federal Government has gone to the Code of Conduct Bureau to get the asset declaration forms of 200 Judges. Any judge that fails to follow their evil plot , will be harassed with false allegations and persecution.
“The Church should continually pray for the Federal Judiciary. The Judiciary in Nigeria is under siege. If anything happens to the judiciary, our democracy is in trouble .
“The Church needs to pray for the judges to remain strong in the face of intimidation and harassment.”
