Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has condemned the raid on the residence of a Supreme Court judge, Justice Mary Odili, by security operatives.

Saga Gist recalls that security operatives invaded Odili’s home on Friday, based on claims that “illegal activities” were going on there.

The search warrant showed that the panel comprises the EFCC, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), and the Ministry of Justice.

But, the anti-graft agency denied reports that its operatives were behind the raid.

Reacting, in a press statement issued by the media office of Atiku, the former VP said the continuation of the notorious behaviour of security operatives conducting a raid on residences of senior judicial officers negates the ideals of a democratic society.

Atiku said, “It is with utmost disgust that we continue to witness situations whereby law enforcement agencies conduct raids on residences of senior judges in the country. Irrespective of the investigations that they pursue, such practices give expression of professional misconduct and put our country in very poor images.

“It needs not be reiterated that this is a democratic republic and every organ of the state bureaucracy, especially the security agencies, must conduct themselves in responsibility to the people of Nigeria.”

The statement also called for discontinuation of such misconduct and asked for an apology to Justice Odili, “a probe of the circumstances that led to the raid and sanction of those involved in this disgraceful act.”
