The police have reportedly sealed off the office of suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.
His media aide, Awusam Bassey, confirmed the development saying that staff were ejected and the office sealed off on Monday morning.
Newspeakonline recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday suspended Onnoghen from office amd swore in Tanko Mohammed as the Acting CJN, pending the determination of the case against Onnoghen at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Onnoghen is facing charges of non-declaration of assets at the Code of Conduct Tribunal which has refused to stay proceedings in the case despite rulings from the a Federal High Court, Industrial Court and the Court of Appeal.
Buhari on Friday said he based his action on an order of the CCT.
Less than 24 hours after being sworn in, the Acting CJN, Mohammed, swore in 250 judges as members and heads of 2019 election tribunals.
