The governor who fielded questions from newsmen in front of the Judge’s residence, said he was manhandled by men of the DSS and the Police who came to whisk the judge away.

“What has happened this night is unfortunate. Even in military government it has never happened like this , you listen to people. This is why we are here. I said not under my watch will I allow this type of activity take place.

“The DSS, Police they cocked their guns and said they will shoot me. And I told them I have never heard this type of thing happen before. Again this is to show that more of this will come."

Wondering why the security men will choose 1:00 am to storm the residence of the judge, the governor said their action portend danger for the nation’s democracy, adding that all he expected the security men to have done was to invite the judge, and that if he had ignored the invitation then other legal steps should have been taken.

Continuing, he said he did not bother to know the name of the judge but he only had to come out to stop the attempted abduction of the judge because as Chief Security of the state he would not allow such lawlessness take place in his state.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Francis Odesanya was decked in a native attire and was among those going around as the governor fielded questions from newsmen on the incident.
