The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Muhammed, has formally written to President Muhammadu Buhari on the decision of the National Judicial Commission on the cases of misconduct established against some judges.
A top source in the Presidency told PUNCH on condition of anonymity on Tuesday that Buhari received the communication on Monday
The source added, “As a matter of fact, two issues were included in the communication. The first was the issue of the judge, who was said to have collected a N200m bribe.
“The other was a comprehensive report of the National Judicial Council on some judges that were sanctioned for misconduct.
The source suspected that since the letter was received on Monday, it could have been prepared before the weekend incident.
