Nigeria Supreme Court Justice arraigned for alleged fraud

Breaking News1

The Federal Government on Monday arraigned a Supreme Court justice, Sylvester Nguta, at the Federal High Court, Abuja, for alleged fraud.

Mr. Nguta was arraigned before Justice John Tsoho.

He is among seven judges arrested by operatives of the State Security Service on October 8, after a midnight raid on their homes.

After pleading not guilty to the 15-count charge, the judge’s lawyer, Kanu Agabi, prayed the court to admit his client on bail.

The trial judge, Mr. Tsoho, stood down the matter for two hours to allow for arguments on the application for bail.

  • I just dey ask

    Did Justice Sylvester Nguta,of the Supreme Court ask for bail first before he started packing
    dollars, euros, dollars, yen and pound sterling inside the pillow case and inside his mattress?
    If he did not need bail at the beginning of his bureau de change bedroom operations, why is
    he supposed to get bail after he was caught doing with it? I just dey ask. I no know book O.

    If even this SC justice is yet to be pronounced guilty he has stained, tainted and disgraced himself and family forever cos of extreme greed and love for money. The trial judge must not give him a soft landing for his bail, due process must be followed and he should go and spend some days at kuje prison. He has perverted justice against many people over many decades cos of his greediness.

    Justice must and should be done

    Good job. A corrupt Judge if convicted must be given the harshest and stiffest punishment. We are watching, Justice John Tsoho.

      Tsoho will doo a good job, because he too is unclean. The fact that he is a defacto APC Judge like Abang, he would only survive if he jails a judge, since his sins are swept under the carpet for now.
