Justice Iyang Okoro

In a letter dated October 17, 2016 and addressed to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed, Okoro said, “I strongly believe that my travail is not unconnected with the verbal report I made to you on 1st February, 2016 about the visit to my official residence by H/E Rotimi Amaechi, former Governor of Rivers State and now Minister of Transportation.

“In that report, I told you my Lord, that Mr. Amaechi said the President of Nigeria and the All Progressives Congress mandated him to inform me that they must win their election appeals in Rivers State, Akwa Ibom and Abia State at all costs.”

Justice Okoro said although he declined the request and ensured he was not on the Akwa Ibom tribunal, Amaechi and others in the APC believed his presence in the Supreme Court made the APC lose its challenge against the Akwa Ibom governorship election at the apex court.

He urged the NJC to ignore all allegations against him as they were lies, insisting he legitimately earned the money found in his house.
