While some are occupying the streets in different states, some are occupying social networks and it is all about the suspension of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.

Onnoghen's case is giving credence to a song - This is Nigeria - as everyone, including the President is, according to some lawyers, is driving on a road of impunity and lawlessness. 

This suspension has continued to generate reactions and Nigerians are again divided along political, religious and ethnic background as they react to the situation. 

President Muhammadu Buhari had slammed a suspension on the man who agreed he failed to declare some of his assets, an act prohibited by the law. 

He was on trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, but President Buhari could not wait to go through the process of suspending a CJN as documented in the Nigerian Constitution.

The President has been accused of highhandedness and flouting constitutional provision and this criticism has brought people to the streets in different states on Monday. 

The protest is hottest at the capital territory, Abuja, and on social networks, with many saying he was sacrificing Nigeria democracy on the altar of selfish aggrandisement.
