Members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Civil Society Organisation of Nigeria and the opposition parties are protesting over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.

The protest took off from the NBA secretariat in Abuja.
None of the leaders of the groups could comment on the ongoing protest at press time.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday suspended Justice Walter Onnoghen and appointed Justice Ibrahim Tanko Mohammed as the acting CJN. President Buhari said that the development was based on the request of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, pending the completion of Onnoghen’s trial.
