There is more trouble for the suspended CJN Justice Walter Onnoghen, as the National Judicial Council, NJC, Today, requested him to reply a fresh petition leveled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria was given seven days to reply to an allegation leveled by the EFCC against him.
The Council, which took the serious decision at the end of its emergency meeting in Abuja, further constituted a Preliminary Complaints Assessment Committee, to check responses to both Onnoghen and the Acting CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad, to several allegations against them.
The NJC said it would continue its meeting on Wednesday to take a final action on the fate of Justices Onnoghen and Muhammad.
More details of the meeting coming soon.
