The Chief Justice of Nigeria Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad has demanded for the records of proceedings in all the suits from which conflicting exparte orders emanated.
To this effect, the Chief Judges of Rivers, Kebbi, Cross Rivers, Anambra, Jigawa and Imo States are to be quizzed on the controversial conflicting orders delivered in their various States on Monday, 6 September 2021.
In a telephone interview with NTA News the Director of Information to the National Judicial Council Soji Oye confirmed that there are indications that the Chief Judge, Delta State High Court, has also been invited to join the other six Chief Judges to meet with the Chief Justice of Nigeria on Monday.
The move to curb forum shopping is to reset the anti-corruption efforts of the Tanko leadership and entrench a new culture of accountability in the judicial system.
Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad is also likely to meet with the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association in the course of the week, over the matter.
