Yakubu Gowon, a former Head of State, Gen., made his comment on the way and manner the judges were arrested over the weekend, he said that can be a threat to democracy and also warned the Federal government to give directives to security operatives not to go outside the laws of the land.

Gowon spoke with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday ahead of the 20th anniversary of ‘‘Nigeria Prays’’, a prayer movement for the country, scheduled for October 15 at the National Christian Centre, Abuja.

The former head of state said;

“It is a serious thing that judges could be arrested. By law, you cannot just arrest anybody just like that. There should have been a proper way of doing it.

“Honestly, it is a serious thing and I hope that the government would give directives to the operatives not to go outside the precepts and the law because if the situation is mishandled, it can be a threat to democracy.

“But you can really do something to make sure that it does not do further harm than it has done so far.”
