The Nigerian Bar Association has resolved to boycott the courts all over Nigeria for two days to protest the suspension of Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The NBA held a National Executive Council meeting on Monday where the resolution was made.

“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.

Justice Onnoghen was suspended from office by President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday based on an order by the Code of Conduct Tribunal. Justice Onnoghen is facing trial on alleged false asset charges at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
