Y. C. MAIKYAU, SAN DECRIES INVASION OF HON JUSTICE ODILI’S RESIDENCE, CALLS IT AN ACT OF DISRESPECT TO JUDICIAL ARM

The past few days’ events starting with the invasion of the home of Hon. Justice Mary Peter-Odili (JSC) by men of our Security Agencies is rather disturbing.

More irking is the blame trading that followed this rather unfortunate incident.

This invasion is one too many! It smacks of a deliberate attempt by Government to harrass and intimidate its third arm (the Judiciary). Apart from the gross violation of His Lordship’s fundamental Right to private and family life guaranteed by our Constitution, the invasion is indisputably a rude disrespect to her judicial office.

The NBA under the able leadership of Mr. Olumide Akpata has already taken a decisive stand against this misadventure by Government and its Security Agencies and I queue squarely behind the said position.

Let it be known that an independent Judiciary is not just a desirable component of a modern society, especially a democratic one, it is a necessity! And those that will attempt to harass the judiciary must be identified and made to face the dire consequences.

I also join the call for the identification and sanction of any member(s) of our Association that is found complicit in this travesty.

The Nigerian Judiciary will not be cowed by any person(s) – no matter how highly placed.

Long may Justice reign in our Nation.

God bless the Lordships of the Nigerian judiciary!

God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Y.C. Maikyau, SAN
Chairman, NBA Welfare Committee
