The police have arrested 14 suspects in connection with the raid on Justice Mary Odili’s Maitama residence in Abuja on 29 October.
The arrest comes about 10 days after IGP Usman Alkali Baba ordered a swift probe into the embarrassing incident.
Among the suspects arrested is fake Chief Superintendent of Police, Lawrence Ajodo; a journalist with one of the national dailies, and an Islamic scholar.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Commissioner Frank Mba paraded the suspects in Abuja on Thursday.
He said the arrest followed a swift investigation by the police.
At least ten more suspects linked with the incident including two military personnel are at large, the police spokesman said.
After several days of reticence, the Inspector General of Police ordered on 1 November detailed investigations into the reported invasion.
The IGP, who noted that the leadership of the Force is not aware and did not at any time order Police operatives to carry out such assignment, described the reported violation of the sanctity of the residence of the Justice of the Supreme Court as unfortunate and unacceptable.
The IGP directed the Force Intelligence Bureau (FIB) to conduct a discrete investigation into the incident. He assured the commitment of the Force to the safety and security of the members of the Judiciary and Nigerians in general.
He further called for calm, promising that the Force will do all within its powers to unravel the perpetrators and motives behind the breach with a view to bringing all indicted persons to book.
He directed the Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to strengthen security around the street and residence of Justice Mary Odili to ensure her safety and also to prevent a reoccurrence of the unfortunate incident.
The IGP assured that the details of Police investigations would be made public on conclusion of investigations.
