Sacked Senator calls for UK, US Visa ban for judges over bribe allegations


Senator Elisha Abbo has urged his critics to charge him to court, following his allegations of bribery against justices of the appeal court to twist election judgments.

Abbo who served as a senator in the red chambers from 2019-2023 before his sack in October 2023.

The former lawmaker had accused the Justices of the Appeal Court of being induced by bribe to upturn his electoral victory.

However, his allegations did not go unnoticed, as several people including a former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice of Akwa Ibom State, Uwemedimo Nwoko (SAN), who has urged him to publicly apologize or face legal actions.

Sen. Abbo has however stood his ground, affirming that his allegations comes with proof and strong evidence.

His words:

“Take me to court. If you don’t, I will sue you for libel. I’m not afraid of going to court. I can’t be intimidated. I’m known for being bold, brave, and standing up to speak the truth,” he said.

Abbo said while he’s awaiting action on his petition to the National Judicial Council against some justices, he had petitioned the United States, United Kingdom, and the European Union seeking visa ban on corrupt justices.

According to him:

“War against corruption in Nigeria must be taken to the judiciary where some judges and justices are carrying out judicial banditry or coup against democracy through unjustifiable nullification of elections of people validly voted for by the Nigerian electorate.

“Such judicial banditry must be fought in and outside the country by calling for a visa ban on the affected judges and justices, and even revocation of visas of their family members already resident abroad.”
