The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has directed its members across the nation to boycott courts from Tuesday over the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
The association took the decision at its emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Monday.
President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Onnoghen on Friday and swore in Ibrahim Muhammad in an acting capacity.
Buhari based his action on an order of the CCT. The chief justice is accused of false assets declaration.
The lawyers, however, said their action which would serve as a warning to the federal government will last two days.
