CJN gags NBA President, others at SANs swearing-in ...

The National Judicial Council, NJC, has issued letters of query to the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen, and the Acting CJN, Tanko Mohammed.

It was learnt that the two Justices were given seven days to respond to the queries.

Onnoghen was asked to respond to allegations leveled against him, especially why he failed to declare all his assets, as stipulated by the law.

The Acting CJN, however, was asked to explain why he allowed himself to be sworn-in by President Muhammadu Buhari, without the recommendation of the Council, as stipulated by the Constitution.

If the two Justices are sanctioned by dismissal, the third most Senior Supreme Court Justice, Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour of Lagos State, will replace them.
