Also, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has scheduled an emergency meeting for today. The president of the association, Mr. Paul Usoro (SAN), announced the meeting on Friday.


The body of lawyers in Nigeria had earlier condemned the CJN’s suspension. It is certain that the association will decide on the next line of action with regard to the crisis.

Already, many of the past presidents of the association such as Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) are insisting that the body must resist the action, which they consider an assault on the constitution.
