Nigeria's CJN, Justice Mahmud Mohammed bars politicians from coming to his home

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed has allegedly barred political office holders and  their lawyers from having interactions with him in his home. Justice Mohammed who is said to have advised judges to do the same, is said to have warned his aides and house hold members concerning his new decision.
“Except for his fellow judicial officers, relations and friends, the CJN has banned politicians from visiting his residence. He has limited all transactions or relationship to his office.

The CJN has also made it a policy to invite a member of the security operatives or aides in his office to henceforth be part of any interaction with Politically-Exposed Lawyers seeking audience with him.

Once any lawyer is suspected to have come to solicit favour, security agents will now be called upon to witness such an audience.

“The new guidelines take immediate effect. The position of the CJN remains the same that the Judiciary must be insulated from politics.

As a matter of fact, what the public did not know is that the CJN deliberately avoided meeting with Governor Nyesom Wike to avoid dragging the Judiciary into the murky waters of politics.”
