Seven judges in Nigeria have been suspended by the country’s judicial council over corruption allegations.
Last month the country’s security agency announced it has seized $800,000 cash from the senior judges during raids.
The judges were arrested by security officials, an action that Bar Association in Nigeria condemned.
The judges are yet to be charged officially by authorities but have now been freed on bail but they have denied the corruption allegations.
President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to deal with widespread corruption after taking office last year.
A high number of former senior officials are facing prosecution in the courts but reported corruption in the Nigerian legal system makes it extremely difficult to convict individuals accused of corruption.
