Justice Walter Onnoghen was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari over allegations of corruption by the code of conduct bureau (CCB).
Onnoghen has so far been replaced by a former Judge, Mohammed Tanko.
Wike said that the strategy which the Federal Government wants to use is by first gathering the asset declaration forms of the Judges and then harass them with false allegations and persecutions if they fail to comply by their evil proposals.
In his words:
“I intercepted a discussion by a Minister of the Federal Executive Council where he was telling a gathering that they are happy that they have dealt with the Supreme Court.
The Minister said that the next set would be the Court of Appeal Judges and the Federal High Court judges. The Minister said any judge that fails to cooperate will face trump up charges and compelled to resign .
“This APC Federal Government has gone to the Code of Conduct Bureau to get the asset declaration forms of 200 Judges. Any judge that fails to follow their evil plot , will be harassed with false allegations and persecution.
“The Church should continually pray for the Federal Judiciary. The Judiciary in Nigeria is under siege. If anything happens to the judiciary, our democracy is in trouble .
“The Church needs to pray for the judges to remain strong in the face of intimidation and harassment.”
