Read what another Judge said about Amaechi

A Justice of the Supreme Court , Justice Sylvester Ngwuta has accused the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi of seeking to manipulate the judgment of the court.

The accusation came days after Justice Inyang Okoro made similar accusation against the Minister of Transport.

Messrs. Okoro and Ngwuta, are the most senior among the seven judges arrested a fortnight ago for alleged corruption by the State Security Service, SSS.

All the arrested judges were later released on bail.

Like Mr. Okoro, Mr. Ngwuta also addressed his letter, sourced from online news medium, The Nigerian Times, to the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

In the letter, Mr. Ngwuta narrated his version of how he was arrested by SSS officials. He accused the agency of “planting huge sums of money” in his house when it was searched.

Apart from accusing Mr. Amaechi of plotting to manipulate him to rule in favour of the APC in the Ekiti election dispute, Mr. Ngwuta also accused the Minister of Science and Technology, Ogbonnaya Onu, of also seeking his help to manipulate an election hearing.

None of the two judges provided any reasons why they did not report the allegations to law enforcement agencies before their arrest for corruption.
