Justice slowly becoming a thing of the past n our dear country …. a kid somewhere in nigeria dreaming of becoming a lawyer and bettering the community would see this and start having doubts … just sad – @iam_Davido
Look at what buhari is turning Nigerian into. Who is the DSS accountable to?????? – @snehgod
according to the law that set-up the SSS…they are accountable only to the president…not even the National Assembly…d law needs amendment. Buhari is the one yet to give directive for Sowore’s release – @Osunwusi
This is sad… Such disrespect to the court of law by law enforcement agents. This is shameful even for FG. – @woman__being

I said it yesterday, that this government is not kind or ready to obey court order, can we all see what they did today, even chased away the judge, what a calamity – @DOsilalu
Everything that could be possibly go wrong, has happened in this administration. The masses have been so weakened. No rage. No mass action. Just some flash moments on twitter and that’s all. We now like a conquered people. – @Alfred_chiedu
Judges can now be chased with Guns. CourtRooms can now be desecrated with turmoil. Judgement of the court can note be abused right inside the court. A sad day for democracy. A sad day for the rule of law. A sad day with a sad precedent. – @YoungOtutu
