Detectives from the Department of State Services (DSS) found a Rolls Royce in the fleet of about 15 cars of one of the seven judges under investigation; The Nation reports.
The judge was said to have hired a notable construction firm to build his palatial home and imported furniture from Brazil, Argentina and Spain.
The judge, said a source close to the investigation, once conducted his “poor colleagues” around his mansion.
Another judge told the DSS that he did not know how N18million was paid into his account and he did not get alert to enable him complain to his bankers.
One of the judges also said the money found in his account was his accumulated medical allowances.
Another judge was found to have submitted three assets declaration forms to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
The asset forms of the seven judges, who were arrested last weekend in a controversial sting operation, were being analysed by the DSS yesterday.
The Federal Government has foreclosed the return of all the seven judges to the bench.
The government believes the judges cannot be in the dock and be adjudicating at the same time.
Those arrested are: Justices Sylvester Ngwuta and Inyang Okoro – the suspended Presiding Justice of the Court of Appeal, Ilorin Division, Justice Mohammed Ladan Tsamiya, who was picked up in Sokoto; Justice Adeniyi Ademola (Federal High Court); the Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice I. A. Umezulike; Justice Kabiru Auta of Kano State High Court; and Justice Muazu Pindiga (Gombe State High Court).
Of the seven Justices, Tsamiya, Umezulike and Auta have been recommended for sanctions by the National Judicial Council (NJC).
Detectives have uncovered more corrupt practices traced to some of the judges undergoing probe, the source said, pleading not to be named because he is not permitted to talk to the media.
