It is carnival like at the entrance of the National Secretariat of the Nigerian Bar Association where members of the National Interest Defenders and Lawyers in Defense of Democracy are protesting the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Onnoghen and swore-in Justice Tanko Mohammed as replacement on Friday.
The protesters carried placards of various inscriptions, including, “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.
Going on at the NBA Secretariat in Abuja right now❗ Nigerians protest the unjust removal of Nigeria’s CJN without due process. Chanting, *ONOGHEN remains the CJN. *
