OP-UNEDITED | Re: Cash Found In Judges Homes: Trust Not The DSS – By Femi Fani-Kayode
By Femi Fani-Kayode
The Greek tragic dramatis and philosopher Aeschylus (525 BC – 456 BC) said “in war, truth is the first casualty”.
It is in this context that one has to view the absurd claims by the DSS that massive sums of cash ranging from 2 million USD to hundreds of thousands of euros and pounds sterling were found in the homes of all the judges that were arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning.
If anyone honestly believes that such large sums of cash were found in the homes of ANY of those judges then that person needs to have his head examined.
The DSS has to say these outrageous things and tell these shameful lies in order to attempt to justify their illegal actions before the world. It is called disinformation and misinformation and that is their stock in trade.
That is what intelligence and security agencies all over the world are paid to do. They destroy their victims before the world with lies and baseless allegations knowing that most Nigerians will believe anything and everything that the government says.
It is sickening and pathetic. In any case nothing can possibly justify the gestapo tactics that the state has employed in this matter.
The storming of peoples homes in the middle of the night and the brutalisation and traumatisation of their families, loved ones and households is archaic and barbaric.
Clearly Nigeria is saddled with a President that is a cross between Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, King Leopold 11 of Belgium, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, Papa Doc Duvalier, Augusto Pinochet, Jean-Bedel Bokassa, Mobutu Sese Seko, Genghis Khan, Atilla the Hun, Count Vlad Dracula and Idi Amin all rolled into one.
May God help us.
