Buhari In Trouble, As All Lawyers, SANs, Begin Immediate Strike, Shut Down All Courts Nationwide

The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has resolved to embark on a two-day boycott of courts, nationwide, to protest the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen.

The NBA arrived at the resolution, at its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting, which held on Monday.

“The Nigerian Bar Association, rising from her NEC meeting, has decided to embark on a two-day warning boycott of courts all over Nigeria, over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, by President Buhari”, the NBA said on Monday evening.

Recall, that Onnoghen is facing trial on alleged false assets declaration charges, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.

He was suspended from Office by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, based on a controversial order by the CCT.

The President implemented the CCT order, despite the Court of Appeal ordering the Tribunal to halt its trial of the CJN.

The suspension has also been questioned by the international community, including the United States, US, European Union, EU, and the United Kingdom, UK.
