Supreme Court debunks investigating CJN

Supreme Court has dismissed an insinuation that the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, JusticeOlukayodeAriwoola was subjected to Interrogation by the Department of State Service over alleged pro-Wike political remarks.

The Apex Court also debunked claims that five Justices of the Court have demanded resignation from office by CJN over the same issue.

In a statement by Director of Information and Press of the Court, Dr. Festus Akande, the Apex Court warned those peddling the rumours to desist in their own interests.

The reaction of the Supreme Court is in response to a publication by an online medium, “People’s Gazette,” which reported that Justice Ariwoola has been grilled by DSS over his alleged political remarks in Port Harcourt at a public function.
