Nigeria’s opposition People’s Democratic Party, members of the Nigeria Bar Association and Civil Society Organisation of Nigeria are protesting over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
Atiku Abubakar, PDP’s presidential candidate, is currently giving an address at the Shehu Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja.
The NBA also took off its protest from the NBA secretariat in Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday suspended Onnoghen and simultaneously swore-in an acting CJN, Ibrahim Mohammed.
Buhari explained that the decision to suspend Justice Onnoghen was at the request of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over allegations that he failed to declare his assets.
The suspension sparked mixed reactions from individuals and groups within and outside the country.
