President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to suspend the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, was in contravention of a court order restraining the President, the Code of Conduct Tribunal and the Attorney-General of the Federation from removing Onnoghen.
According to court documents obtained by our correspondent on Friday, Justice I. E Ekwo of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had on Monday restrained all parties from suspending or removing the CJN.
The order was sequel to a suit filed by the Action Peoples Party with number FHC/ABJ/CS/67/2019.
The judge granted, “an order of interim injunction restraining the 1st (President), 2nd (AGF) 4th (Justice Ibrahim Mohammed), 5th (CCB) and 6th (CCT) whether by themselves, officers, agents, servants, privies or otherwise, however, described from removing the 3rd defendant (Onnoghen) as the Chief Justice of Nigeria pending the determination of the motion on notice.”
Buhari, however, went ahead to suspend the CJN, relying on an order of the CCT.
