Buhari sponsored protesters against arrested judges, demand that they step down

Some protesters obviously sponsored by the President Mohammadu Buhari led executive arm of government invaded the Supreme Court in Abuja on Wednesday, demanding that the serving judges recently arrested by the Department of State Service should step down pending when they would clear their names.
The protesters, under the aegis of The Forum of Non-Governmental Organisations in Nigeria, were prevented by security operatives from entering the apex court’s premises.
Led by the group’s chairman, Mr. Wole Badmus, the protesters brandished placards with various inscriptions such as, ‘Stop corruption before it stops you’; ‘Don’t get it twisted, judiciary is not on trial, only corrupt officials are;’ “Justices are to interpret the law, they are not empowered to interpret hard currencies;’ and ‘When a judge stuffs illicit cash in his shoes, water don pass water.’
An inscription on a placard also read, ‘In the struggle to salvage the judiciary, every onlooker is either a coward or a traitor.’
