NJC begins hearing on petitions against Onnoghen, acting CJN

An investigative panel of the national judicial council will this week begin hearing on the petitions of alleged misconduct written against the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen; and the acting CJN, Justice Tanko Muhammad.

It was gathered that the five-man panel set up by the NJC to investigate the petitions against the top judicial officers would conduct a hearing on Muhammad’s case tomorrow.

The panel had its first sitting on Mr. Onnoghen’s case last month before it was adjourned.

The NJC had at its last meeting reviewed the pre-assessment report on the petitions written against the two men and considered the complaints worthy of being investigated.

The council then set up a five-man panel led by a retired Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice S.A Akande, to investigate the petitions and issued queries to the judicial officers.
