The National Judicial Council is expected to meet today (Tuesday) to deliberate on the controversial suspension of Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.
Neither Justice Onnoghen nor acting CJN Tanko Muhammad will preside over the NJC meeting today.
And ahead of today’s meeting the office of the Attorney General of the Federation has sent a list of criminal allegations against Justice Water Onnoghen to the National Judicial Council.
Reports say the petition contains a number of damaging allegations against Justice Onnoghen, including bank statements and title deeds of properties said to have been traced to him.
Meantime, the Code of Conduct Tribunal adjourned indefinitely on Monday, saying it was obeying an order of the court of appeal.
