Nigeria on the brink of chaos as lawyers boycott courts over suspension of chief justice by desperate President


Lawyers in Nigeria announced on Monday that they would be embarking on a two-day warning boycott of all courts in the country from Tuesday 29 January, 2019, over the suspension by President Muhammadu Buhari of Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The decision came hours after a national executive meeting by lawyers, just days after Mr Buhari suspended Onnoghen allegedly because he falsely declared his assets.

Opposition has warned that President Buhari, a retired Major-General, was plunging Nigeria back into dictatorship, just weeks to a presidential election he was not sure of winning.
