Security operatives storm Mary Odili’s residence in Abuja

Security operatives, on Friday, stormed the home of Mary Odili, a justice of the supreme court, in Abuja.

The supreme court justice is the wife of Peter Odili, a former governor of Rivers state, who is currently on the watchlist of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Details of the incident are still sketchy at this time.

According to a source, the security operatives were made up of soldiers and officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

It is not yet clear why the home of the supreme court justice was raided.

The judge, who is currently second on the list of the supreme court hierarchy, is expected to be involved in the appointment of a seven-member panel that will make a final pronouncement on the value-added tax (VAT) controversy involving some states and the federal government.
