Oni, according to The Cable, said the allegations by the judges against the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, would not be taken seriously because of late timing.
Justices Sylvester Ngwuta and John Okoro, both of the Supreme Court, had accused Amaechi of attempting to bribe them. Oni was quoted as saying: “I am not in the position to defend Amaechi, but I feel very very sad. I am very sad that a justice of the Supreme Court could come up much later to say somebody attempted to bribe him. If I am a justice of the Supreme Court, that person would not spend another week before he is arrested. .

So, because it is a crime, if you see somebody committing crime and you keep quiet and now you are talking about it, do you want people to take you seriously?
It’s like somebody saying I saw somebody committed rape last year and I didn’t do anything about it. I don’t think that sounds wise. I am not exonerating anybody and there can be investigation.”
