Onnoghen: NJC sets up panel as EFCC sends fresh petition

The National Judicial Council (NJC) has set up a panel to consider the responses of the embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen and the acting CJN Tanko Mohammed.

The NJC, which reconvened in an emergency meeting on Monday to consider the three petitions against Onnoghen and Mohammed, has also set up a Preliminary Complaints Assessment Committee under Regulation 17 to consider the responses and report back to the council.


A statement by the Director of Information of the NJC, Soji Oye also stated that the NJC received a new petition written by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against Justice Onnoghen.

He added that the petition has been forwarded “to him for his response within seven (7) working days.”

The NJC will reconvene on Wednesday.
