NBA to boycott courts for two days over Onnoghen’s suspension

Lawyers nationwide will stay out of courts for two days in protest of the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has decided.

The NBA resolved to undergo the boycott during its National Executive Council meeting held on Monday.

“The Nigerian Bar Association rising from her NEC meeting has decided to embark on a two-day warning boycott of courts all over Nigeria over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria by President Buhari,” the NBA said on Monday evening.

Mr Onnoghen has been accused of non-declaration of assets by the Federal Government.

The CJN was suspended from office by President Muhammadu Buhari last Friday acting on a controversial order by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
