The suspects were paraded at the Force Headquarters Annex yesterday. Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Mr. Frank Mba, described the suspects as impostors who were unknown to any of the nation’s security forces.

He said the 14 suspects and seven others now at large conspired to raid the residence following information that the Supreme Court Justice was keeping a large sum of money in foreign currencies.

Mba noted that the leader of the illegal operation is a fake chief superintendent of police and that the criminals are loose cannons and document forgers who were on their own and not hired by any personnel of the ministry of justice.

A journalist identified as Stanley Nkwazeme was also one of those arrested.

The incident drew criticisms from many quarters including the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, amongst others.

While commending the resilience and resistance of the security agents attached to the justice’s house on the day of the incident, Mba said it could have been the greatest embarrassment to the nation.
