NJC CONCLUDES HEARING ON PETITION AGAINST SUSPENDED AND ACTING CJN’S
The National Judicial Council (NJC) has concluded its hearing on the petition against the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen and Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Mohammed.
NJC said it is abstaining from considering the allegations relating to assets declarations levelled against Justice Onnoghen, on the grounds that they are subjudice.
The judicial body reached a decision on the petitions written by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and others, thereby conveying its decision to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The council also resolved that, by the nature of the decision reached, it would be inappropriate to publicise it before conveying it to the President.
