Court Arraigns Fifteen Persons Over Invasion Of Justice Odili’s Residence (Updated: 10 months ago)


The Federal High Court, Abuja has arraigned 15 persons over the home invasion of Supreme Court judge, Justice Mary Odili on October 29.

The police arraigned the suspects before Justice Nkeonye Maha on an 18-count charge.

Force spokesman Frank Mba had on November 11 said that 14 suspects including a fake chief superintendent of police (CSP) Lawrence Ajojo and journalist Stanley Nkwazema were arrested over the incident.

He said the suspects, and seven others at large, conspired to raid the residence following information that the Supreme Court justice was keeping a large sum of money in foreign currencies.

According to Mba, the seven suspects still at large include two soldiers.

He said the suspects came from different professional backgrounds such as journalism, banking, law enforcement and law.

Odili’s residence was invaded following alleged tip-off by a whistleblower, Aliyu Umar, who claimed to have observed suspicious activities at the residence.

Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Iyanna was said to have approved a search warrant by a body identified as the joint panel recovery unit in the ministry of justice. The magistrate later revoked the order, saying he was misled while the police and other security agencies also said they were not aware of the raid.

However, the police commended the resistance put up by the security personnel attached to Odili’s residence for not granting the suspects access to the building.
