Three Judges are to appear before the National Judicial Council (NJC) for disciplinary action over granting of conflicting ex parte orders.

Director of Information, NJC, Mr. Soji Oye in a statement hints that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad has expressed his determination to set an example with the three judges.

According to the statement, the CJN directs state Chief Judges to henceforth take absolute charge of assigning cases, especially political matters, personally. 

He also warned Chief Judges to stop making newly appointed Judicial officers vacation Judges or assigning complex cases to inexperienced Judges.  

The CJN further advised all Heads of Court to be conversant with developments in the polity and judgments delivered by courts of various jurisdictions noting that the Judiciary would no longer condone indiscipline or allow any Judge to tarnish the image of the Judiciary.
