The showdown between President Muhammadu Buhari and the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, is getting messier.

Few days after he was suspended, he has also been locked out of his office by men of the Nigeria Police Force.

In a move that appeared to stop any possibility of Onnoghen to accessing the office, policemen were said to have sealed the office and ejected all administrative staff in the axis of the CJN office asearly as 7am on Monday.

A source at the Supreme Court said, “The police have sealed the office of the CJN. Officers and men of the Force went to the administrative staff offices at about 7am and ordered clerical and other staff who were already at their desks to leave after which they locked up everywhere.”

This came as the National Judicial Council has fixed Tuesday for an emergency meeting to deliberate on the sudden suspension of Onnoghen and swearing in of Justice Tanko Muhammad as the Acting CJN by President Buhari.
