Some police officers on Monday morning sealed the office of suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen.
“The police have sealed the office of the CJN. Officers and men of the Force went to the administrative staff offices at about 7 am and ordered clerical and other staff who were already at their desks to leave after which they locked up everywhere,” a source told The Punch.
In a related development, President Buhari is meeting with Senators elected under the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the lawmakers reconvene over Onnoghen’s suspension.
The lawmakers, who had gone on break until after the conduct of the 2019 elections, would be meeting on Tuesday to discuss the suspension.
Tanko Muhammad was appointed by Buhari as the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) and he had appointed 250 judges for the 2019 Election Tribunal.
