It was all rallies in Abuja on Monday as anti and pro-suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, took over some streets in Abuja.

Buharists Hangout (BH), a group of Nigerians in solidarity with President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-graft war, were on one side while opposition parties, some members of the Nigeria Bar Association and some Civil Society Organisations were on another side.

The rallies were fallout of the suspension of Onnoghen who was supposed to be facing trial for non-declaration of some of his foreign currencies in various accounts in banks.

He was suspended following the order of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) where Onnoghen was supposed to be facing trial.

Protesters stormed the premises of the American embassy to lodge their complaints.

They carried placards with the inscription, “Onnoghen must be reinstated’’, “America must act now’’.
