The said ministers are the former governor of Rivers State now minister for transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and  Ogbonnaya Onu, Minister for Science and Technology.

According to a recent report by Vanguard, the Human Rights group also urges the Federal High Court, Abuja to compel EFCC, DSS and ICPC to arrest and prosecute the two ministers.

The group is also praying the court to compel President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Rotimi Amaechi and Ogbonnaya Onu with immediate effect until they have been vindicated by the court of the allegations leveled against them by two Supreme Court Judges, Sylvester Ngwuta and Justice Inyang Okoro.

The suit, which is marked FHC/ABJ/CS/857/2016 and dated October 31, 2016 is yet to be assigned to any judge for the hearing.

In October, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta and Justice John Inyang Okoro had accused Rotimi Amaechi and Mr. Onu of alleged bribery attempt.

Justice Sylvester Ngwuta reported that he was arrested after his home was raided by operatives of the Department of State Service, DSS, because of his refusal to yield to Amaechi and APC’s requests.

In a report by Daily Post, Ngwuta said he is being victimized for refusing entreaties, at various times, to help the All Progressives Congress, APC, win governorship election cases involving Ekiti, Rivers and Ebonyi states.

The APC-led government under Buhari’s administration has one major enemy aside PDP, and that is corruption. Sadly, staunch members of the party are being ropped into a mess involving the same vice they fight dearly against.
