This study sets out to assess the “Judiciary and Anti-corruption in Nigeria, 2015-2017.” The objective of the study was to analyze the efficacy of Judiciary in its fight against bribery and corruption in Nigeria between 2015 and 2017. Three research questions were posed to guide the study; why has the judiciary been unable to adequately fight corruption in Nigeria between 2015 and 2017? The study was anchored on Elite theory propounded by Vifredo Pareto and Gaetano Mosca (1956) which proposes that every state has the ruling class who galvanize together to sustain their interests as well as compel the citizens to accept certain conditions as given in the society.Data was collected through observation method, relying on secondary sources. The study adopted ex-post facto research design, while content analysis was used as the method of data analysis. The study revealed that the judiciary has not been adequately funded to boost the fight against corruption in Nigeria. Thus the judiciary is muscled thereby losing its independence while many executive members are shielded by immunity clause and political fiat thereby limiting the efficacy of the judiciary in the anti-corruption fight. The study recommends among other things that: there is need for reform in the Nigeria legal system to pave way for judicial independence for efficient service delivery in anti-corruption fight.
