“Then he defected to APC, and in three years, Honourable Justice Adebukola Banjoko led him to the bowels of justice, giving the people of Taraba the justice they deserve. This is a clear signal that the war on corruption is in full swing.
“It’s evidence that our laws can reach everywhere. This is a clear evidence that APC is not a hiding place for those who have questions, criminal questions to answer.
“The long arm of the law will grab all those who believe that by joining APC, they are washed clean. APC is not a harbour for those running from the law.
“It’s a victory for all law-abiding citizens of this nation and hope for all those wards, local government areas, states, constituencies and senatorial districts where their elected leaders and representatives have betrayed their trust by going to, and staying in bed with corruption and impunity.
“We must thank this worthy judge who withstood all forms of pressure and inducements from corrupt lawyers and godfathers. Honourable Justice Adebukola Banjoko is a shining example of a judge in the criminal justice system that is slowly but surely, emerging in our nation.
“The days when justice is for sale, are coming to an end. The days when only the poor gets punished for crimes are nearly over.
