It has been reported that Sirajo and Sanni, the two sons of the Chief Judge of Nigeria [CJN], Justice Muhammad Tanko, have been arrested by operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS.
The news came through a twit by Mr. Jackson Ude, a former Director of Strategy/ Communication under President Goodluck Jonathan.
Ude said their phones were seized and all call logs, as well as messages were searched. One of the two has been released on bail but the other is still a guest of the DSS as at this morning.
Ude, a Global Peace Ambassador and Communications expert, said however, that their arrest is to arm-twist the CJN to reverse the recent Supreme Court judgement on Bayelsa State.
He tweeted that it “is part of the schemes to intimidate the Supreme Court to revert the Bayelsa election in favor of APC [All Progressives Congress].
