A group of lawyers under the aegis of the National Interest Defenders and Lawyers in Defense of Democracy have stormed the National Secretariat of the Nigerian Bar Association to protest the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the swearing in of Justice Tanko Mohammed as the actin CJN.

The lawyers  carried placards with various inscriptions, as “Tanko Mohammed, stop parading yourself as CJN;” “NBA must act now by ordering lawyers to down tool;” “Amaechi, El-Rufai, Akpabio, Malami, APC: brains behind Onnoghen’s trial;” “NJC must reconvene now and expel Justice Tanko Mohammed,” among others.

Recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Onnghen, following the advice by the Code of Conduct Tribunal to so so.

Onnoghen had been alleged of corrupt practice for failing to declare some of his assets before becoming the CJN.
