President Buhari has suspended troubled Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen. Presidential assistant, Bashir Ahmad, affirmed this on twitter a few minutes back.
”JUST IN: President @MBuhari suspends the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen and appoints Mr. Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed as acting CJN.”
Justice Tanko Mohammed is from Bauchi State and he is next in line to Justice Onnoghen. He was confirmed by President Buhari Friday evening inside the council assembly of the State House, Abuja. The taking of oath was done after the president endorsed the new Executive Order 007.
Justice Onnoghen is facing legal proceeding for deceitful proclamation of properties.
