Onnoghen was asked to respond to allegations leveled against him, especially why he failed to declare all his assets, as stipulated by law.

The Acting CJN, Mohammed, was also asked to explain why he allowed himself to be sworn-in by President Muhammadu Buhari without the recommendation of the Council, as stipulated by the Constitution.
