The State Chapter of the APC says it would drag politically EXPOSED judges used by Governor Nyesom Wike to undermine the advancement of democracy in Rivers State before the National Judicial Commission, NJC.
The APC Chairman, Isaac Ogbobula issued the threat at a media briefing in Port Harcourt last night.
Ogbobula disclosed that the APC has obtained credible information that a judge of the Port Harcourt High Court would be used today, Monday 21st December, 2020, by some discredited politicians who are working with Governor Wike to truncate the activities of the Caretaker Committee.
The APC Caretaker Chairman sworn in by the National Secretariat of the party after all party structures were scrapped by NEC swore that it would not be business as usual.
He noted that some judges including Justice George Omereji,
Justice Chinwendu and Justice Fiberesima have been allegedly used in the past to destabilize the APC in Rivers State.
Ogbobula also hinted that while younger magistrates have been promoted above their seniors, Justice Omereji has been purportedly rewarded for his alleged roles in favour of the Wike administration with an appointment as the Chairman of the State Independent Electoral Commission.
The APC added that in pursuit of his ambition to manipulate Justices of the State and Federal High Courts, Governor Wike doled out the sum of N150 million to each of the judges under the guise of providing them with accommodation.
The Telegraph has also learnt that the sum of N20 million may have been released to some judges in Rivers State by the Wike administration as Wike prepares for a full scale judicial war with the APC using surrogates. .
