The Department of State Services says it recovered over N270m from the houses of the judges it raided late on Friday and in the early hours of Saturday.
The agency said this on Saturday, while explaining the reason for its
widely-criticised raid, during which over four judges were arrested.
The DSS said N93,558,000.00; $530,087; £25,970; and €5,680 (a total of over
N270m) were recovered from three of the judges affected in the raid, which the
agency described as a follow up to the outcome of a “special sting operation”.
The agency, however, accused a judge in Rivers State of hiding $2m, vowing
that it would recover the cash.
