Ibrahim Muhammad, the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), has summoned six chief judges over conflicting orders issued in their courts.
The CJN issued the summons on Monday, requesting that the judges explain their orders on cases bordering on the tussle for the chairmanship of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“My attention has been drawn to media reports of some courts of coordinate jurisdiction were granting conflicting Exparte Orders on the same subject matter,” the summons reads.
