Benue state, Governor Samuel Ortom has requested the federal government to cease bullying judicial personnel in the nation.

Ortom spoke out a few days after a search on the house of Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili, calling it “unwarranted and coercive.”

In the statement released by his chief press secretary Nathaniel Ikyur, the Governor noted that this is the second time a top judicial officer’s home will be invaded by “agents of the state”.

He maintained that instead of politicizing attacks on top judicial officers to embarrass and intimidate them, the Federal Government should be ready to obey all court orders in line with the practice in saner democratic climes.

The statement read;

“The Governor suggests that instead of politicizing attacks on top judicial officers to embarrass and intimidate them to submit to the whims of the Federal Government, it should be ready to obey all court orders in line with the practice in saner democratic climes.

“He stresses that since Nigeria is practising democracy, all the arms of government must be allowed to function optimally without any infringement of the rights of others.

“He calls on the Attorney General and Minister of justice to immediately order investigations into the invasion of Justice Odili’s residence and culprits are made to face the full wrath of the law.”
