Following the suspension of the Chief Justice of the Federation, CJN, Walter Onnoghen, Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray Bruce, has said President Muhammadu Buhari must be stopped.
Bruce said if Buhari was not stopped, he may remove the Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye and the Sultan or the Obi of Onitsha.
Buhari had last Friday suspended Onnoghen and appointed Tanko Muhammed as acting CJN.
Explaining his reason, the President said he suspended Onnoghen, following an order from the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, asking him to wield the big stick.
In his speech sent to DAILY POST, Buhari said the order demanded that the CJN be suspended pending the determination of his ongoing trial at the tribunal.
However, Bruce, in a tweet wrote: “We watched as Abacha killed and removing anyone who stood his way and we said we are not Yoruba or from Abiola’s family.
“Then one day he removed the Sultan himself. If we don’t stop @MBuhari today, we don’t know who he will remove next. It could be Sultan, Ooni, Emir, Oba or Obi.”
