Lawyers Protesting the illegal suspension of Justice Walter Onnoghen earlier today were disrupted by APC thugs. Thugs numbering over 100 Came with weapons such as Bottles ,knives ,and stones in their bid to ensure that the lawyers could not hold their peaceful demonstrations.
Some of thugs when interviewed by our correspondent off camera said they were mobilized all the way from Kaduna, not knowing where they were going.
You will recall that on Friday President Mohammadu Buhari announced the suspension of Justice Walter Onnoghen over charges of corruption and his inability to declare his assets.
Some of the lawyers who spoke to journalists said they are against any form of illegality “we won’t allow the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to be assaulted, we stand by the rule of law, we are legal Practioneers and not touts”. The lawyers also noted that no one is above the law and that President Buhari should follow the rule of law and apply due process as stipulated by the constitution in the removal of the CJN because Nigeria is a country Governed by laws.
