The controversies that trailed the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria  (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, and the emergence of Tanko Mohammed as acting CJN may today be laid to rest as the  National Judicial Council (NJC) will reconvene to deliberate on the matter.

Recall that the NJC on January 29 adjourned its meeting to February 11 having directed the duo to respond to petitions against them.

It is reported that Onnoghen had responded to a petition by  Zikhirillahi Ibrahim of Resource Centre for Human Rights and Civil Education, while Justice Mohammed had also answered two petitions against him, including one from the Centre for Justice and Peace Initiative and the other from Olisa Agbakoba (SAN).

However, their responses have not been made public.
