Onnoghen: Lawyers Shun NBA’s Boycott Directive

Lawyers on Tuesday shunned a directive of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) calling on its members to boycott courts nationwide for two days, following the suspension of Justice Walter Onnoghen, as Chief Judge of Nigeria.
It was observed that two out of the four courts had their usual court proceedings, while one delivered a ruling.
NBA reached a resolution to boycott courts nationwide from Tuesday Jan. 29 and Wednesday Jan. 30, after its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on Monday in Abuja.
The NBA President, Paul Usoro, who made the announcement, said lawyers reached the agreement to drive home their displeasure over the suspension of the CJN.
Onnoghen was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari on Jan. 25, over failure to declare his assets as required of every public servant.
