Lawyers in Akwa Ibom State are not smiling at all. Their refusal to smile is connected with the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.
Earlier yesterday, the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) directed its members nationwide to boycotts the courts for two days to protest what it called the illegal suspension of Walter Onnoghen by the Muhammadu Buhari administration..
The association took the decision at its emergency national executive committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja today.
The NBA Chairperson also constituted a monitoring team led by herself to go round courts and ensure that no lawyer appears in the Court.
A member of the monitoring team of NBA Toyo Jimmy, Esq said the sit at home order directed by NBA is to protest the siege that President Muhammadu Buhari has inflicted on the Judiciary.
Toyo Jimmy said, in the Legal Profession, an injury to one is injury to all.
