The president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria has condemned the arrest of judges on suspicion of corruption.
“We have been very clear with the President in our various meetings
that the rule of law must be upheld,” said Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama
of Jos, according to a Nigerian daily.
“I condemn anything that has no legal backing,” he added. “We are not
just a banana republic; we are a serious nation populated by millions
of people and we should measure up to international standard. We should
be seen to follow due process.”
