Security personnel attempted to shoot Rivers Governor

It was a strenuous weekend for the Judiciary, said to be the last hope of the common man, as security operatives attacked home of Federal Judges in Abuja and other part of the country.
One of such attack failed Rivers State when the Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike stood between a Federal High Court Judge and the operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) who stormed the home of the judge to whisk him away.
The illegal failed abduction was led by Mr Tosin Ajayi, Rivers State Director of the Department of State Services (DSS) and the state’s Police Commissioner, Mr Francis Odesanya.
The operatives of DSS reportedly rough-handled Governor Wike, pushing him around and injuring his hand.
A few of the operatives cocked their rifles and threatened to shoot the Governor.
They were irked by Governor Wike’s arrival at the scene shortly after the failed abduction process began. It was learnt that Governor Wike received security information on the illegal moves, minutes after the operation started.
However, the commotion attracted passers by and journalists who thronged the vicinity to know why hundreds of security agents in several patrol vans had been mobilised.
Upon the arrival of the national media, the Rivers State Director of the DSS,
Mr Tosin Ajayi jumped into his vehicle and fled the scene.
However, addressng journalists, Rivers State Police Commissioner, Francis Odesanya said the two security agencies were at the scene because they received privileged information.
Odesanya claimed he was at the scene as a peace maker. He declined comments on why the Police joined the DSS to abduct a serving Federal High Court judge.
In an interview with journalists at the scene of the failed illegal abduction of a Federal High Court judge by the Police and DSS, Governor Wike said it will not be under his watch that security agencies wiĺl be allowed to entrench needless impunity.
