Group urges FG to investigate raid of Justice Odili’s House

The federal government has been called upon to probe and bring to justice all those involved in the invasion of Justice Mary Odili’s residence.

A group, Equity and Justice in Politics and Governance Movement said government should conduct a thorough investigation.

The Convener of the group, Momodu H. Tarka, described the invasion of the residence of Justice Odili as shameful and embarassment

The group said thorough investigation should be carried out to unearth those behind the act.

Tarka said, ”Still some accusing fingers were being pointed at the Honourable Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubalar Malami, SAN, who also swiftly and boldly deny any involvement in the sage. In addition to that he also ordered that investigation be carried-out to unravel the issue as well as bring to book the perpetrators of the dastardly act.

”Ordinarily, we, at the EQUITY AND JUSTICE IN POLITICS AND GOVERNANCE MOVEMENT would have ignored the saga and not delve into the issue but because we are a responsible organisation that is concerned about the well-being of the country and its citizens and we are firm believers in the entrenchment of democracy and the rule of law, hence, our intervention.

”We noted with great displeasure several attempts to the name and the office of Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami,SAN in any matter in the country with a view to dent his hard earned image. One of which was the allegation accused of indiscriminately granting fiat to some persons to prosecute and recover government assets from some politically exposed person. SOME OF THESE MOVES ARE ALREADY PLAYING OUT AND FRESH ALLEGATIONS WILL BE IN THE MEDIA BETWEEN NOW AND WEEKEND!

‘With this revelation, we call on security agencies in the country to investigate and prosecute anyone found culpable in the assault on Justice Odili.

”Even, before investigations are carried out, some mischief makers have accused the Honourable Attorney-General and Minister of Justice of being involved in the invasion and called for his sack.


”It is obvious that some Nigerians who do not want the progress of the country in the justice sector are envious of his achievement as AGF. These people could go to any length to mischievously attempt to forge his signature and append to any document, concoct different names, supply bogus email address, spurious locations and false identities to do the job of their pay masters.

”Whenever there are issues like this, they are so quick to pass judgment that IF THE SUN DOES NOT RISE TODAY, THEY WILL

”Thankfully, the AGF has said he is open to investigation. It takes someone whose hands are clean to be bold enough to say that he is open to probe.”
