SAHARAREPORTERS, an online news portal reported that the SSS had advised the Presidency against such a move as it will polarize the polity which is viewed as been tense already following allegations that the fight against corruption is skewed to favour those in the ruling All Progressives Congress.’

Justice Onnoghen is fingered to have played a role in the victory of Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike’s victory at the Supreme Court

The secret document according to SAHARAREPORTERS also stated, “extensively” the issues surrounding Justice Adeniyi Ademola who it is reported that: “In 2010, the Cross Rivers State command of the DSS determined that Justice Ademola had accepted a bribe from some members of the “Peace Corps of Nigeria” and oil bunkerers under prosecution.”
