The National Judicial Commission, NJC, has issued a fresh query to the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
The new NJC query has to do with the petition against him from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. Onnoghen has seven days to respond to the query and the allegations raised against him by the EFCC.
It would be recalled the suspended CJN had earlier been queried alongside the acting CJN, Tanko Mohammad by the NJC.
The decision was taken by the NJC at the end of its emergency meeting in Abuja.
The Council constituted a Preliminary Complaints Assessment Committee, to consider responses to both Onnoghen and acting CJN Muhammad, to various petitions against them.
The Council has scheduled Wednesday to reconvene to take a final decision on the fate of both men.
