Senior lawyers in the country under the umbrella of the Body of Senior Advocate s of Nigeria (BOSAN) have met with the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami and demanded an immediate probe of last Friday’s siege on the Abuja home of Justice Mary Odili of the Supreme Court.
Members of the group, including Adegboyega Awomolo, Prof Yemi Akinseye-George and Jibrin Okutepa, among others warned that development threatens judicial independence and the nation’s democracy.
Awomolo told journalists, after the meeting that the group also plans to meet with the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) later in the day on the issues.
Dr. Umar Gwandu, the media aide to the AGF, said Malami, denied involvement of his office in the incident.
He said Malami has written relevant security agencies to investigate the development.
