The National Judicial Council (NJC) has commenced the emergency meeting scheduled for Tuesday in Abuja.
On the list of the agenda for the meeting is the suspension of Walter Onnoghen as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
Onnoghen was suspended last Friday by President Muhammadu Buhari. Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad was sworn in to take his place in acting capacity.
Onnoghen was suspended on a directive by the Code of Conduct Tribunal over allegations of fraudulent declaration of assets.
