"No one can blackmail Justice Odili and go free. This dictatorial, tyrannical, despotic, authoritarian military junta disguising as civil administration should leave Justice Odili alone to do her work and retire in peace."

"What happened to Onnoghen, former CJN can never repeat itself again. Remember, nothing last forever. Where is Magu today? Buhari will vacate office someday and another person will replace him. What happened to Ali Mustapha may repeat itself in the near future if you allow yourself to be used to witch-hunt perceived political enemies. A word is enough for the wise."
