Justice Adeniyi Ademola, one of the Federal High Court judges, arrested by DSS last weekend, has said he was being tried for granting bail to Sambo Dasuki and ruling that Nnamdi Kanu be freed.
Ademola said “DSS told me that I am under arrest and ordered me with guns still pointed at me to move outside.
“As I was going, they told me they were taking me to their office without showing any warrant of arrest.
“I obeyed them and about six o’clock in the morning, I was whisked away from my residence to the DSS office.
“From the time of my arrival at the DSS office, at about 6:45am on 8/10/2016, I was not told what my crime was.
“A DSS official finally informed me that my arrest were based on these three allegations.
“Firstly that I granted bail to Col. Sambo Dasuki and the unconditional release of Nnamdi Kanu.
“They also said I used my office to secure my wife’s appointment as the head of civil service, through Bola Tinubu.”
Justice Ademola said he also believed he was arrested as revenge from Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation.
Ademola said he ordered the arrest and detention of the AGF between 2004 and 2008 over a professional misconduct while he was judge in Kano.
“I see it as a vendetta/revenge from the Hon. attorney general of the federation, Abubakar Malami.
“Whilst I was in Kano between 2004 and 2007 as a federal high court judge, he was involved in a professional misconduct necessitating his arrest and detention by my order,” he said.
