'Why Buhari Hurriedly Removed CJN Onnoghen'

More facts emerged in Abuja on Saturday on why Buhari could not wait for the court to determine the fate of the embattled CJN, Walter Onnoghen.

The Chief Justice, it was gathered, was expected to
inaugurate judges that will adjudicate over the conduct of the 2019 elections in the country. He had fixed Saturday (yesterday) for the inauguration of the election petition panels.

A source told The Punch that, “There are a total of 250 members who would sit on the election panels. The panels comprise National Assembly Election Petition Tribunals, Governorship Election Petition Tribunals, and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunals.

“His sudden removal was aimed at either stopping the event or removing some judges on the lists...”

Journalists barred from CJN’s house 
Journalists have been barred from accessing the house of the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.

The Punch correspondent who tried to gain access to the house located close to the Supreme Court was denied entry by stern-looking security men comprised of policemen and men of Department of State Services.

He was turned back by the men wearing presidential villa accreditation tag who told him his visit could not be permitted.

One of the men of the DSS, who questioned the correspondent, asked, “What is your mission here.”

Punch correspondent: I’m here to observe the situation around the house of the CJN to avoid misleading report.

DSS: Are you invited?

Punch Correspondent: I don’t need a formal invitation in this circumstance, I only come to have first-hand information.

DSS: That means you are here on sight and see. Sight and see is not allowed. Make a detour and go back.

The operative then beckoned on armed policemen to guide the correspondent out.
