The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN ) has likened Nigeria to a Banana Republic over the recent crackdown and arrest of 7 judges by the Department of Security Services (DSS) under the authorization of President Muhammadu Buhari.

CBCN president and  Catholic Archbishop of Jos, Ignatius Kaigama, said on Wednesday:
"We have been very clear with the President in our various meetings that the rule of law must be upheld and there should be no sentiments in the application of the rule of law. We are not in a system of government where people are just fished out for selfish or political interest.

"I condemn anything that has no legal backing. We are not just a banana republic; we are a serious nation populated by millions of people and we should measure up to international standard. We should be seen to follow due process. We wouldn’t like arbitrariness."
