Buhari had on Friday suspended Onnoghen and immediately appointed Muhammed as acting CJN.

Explaining his reason, the President said he suspended Onnoghen, following an order from the CCT, asking him to wield the big stick.

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has already slammed Buhari’s decision to suspend Onnoghen, describing it as an “attempted coup against the Nigerian Judiciary”.
