The Director-General of the DSS, Lawal Daura, on Tuesday, October 11, met briefly with President Muhammadu Buhari. 

According to The Punch, the agenda of the meeting, which described as a routine one, was not made public. 

The DG DSS was also sighted joining worshippers for prayer at a mosque located beside the president’s office before leaving the Presidential Villa. 

Mahmud Muhammed, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, has formally written to President Muhammadu Buhari on the decision of the National Judicial Council (NJC) on the cases of misconduct established against some judges, The Punch reports. 

A source in the Presidency who spoke on the condition of anonymity on Tuesday, October 11, said that President Buhari received the communication on Monday, October 10. 

Although the communication came at a time of outrage on the arrests of some judges by officials of the DSS, the source said the arrests and the raids on the judges’ homes were not part of the letter. 

“As a matter of fact, two issues were included in the communication. The first was the issue of the judge, who was said to have collected a N200m bribe. 

“The other was a comprehensive report of the National Judicial Council on some judges that were sanctioned for misconduct. 

The issue of the raids on the homes of some judges and their arrests were not contained in the communication,” the source added. In another development, Justice Mohammed has blasted the Department of State Services (DSS) for raiding the residence of judges. 

Speaking at a valedictory court session held in honour of a retiring Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Suleiman Galadima, Mohammed described the action of the DSS as regrettable. 

He urged Nigerians to remain calm adding that the National Judicial Council (NJC) would meet on Tuesday to take a position on the incident.
