CJN, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad

Nigeria’s Chief Justice, Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad has issued a strong warning against disobedience to lawful court orders in the country.

He made the threat on Friday while speaking at the launching of the 9th House of Representatives Legislative Agenda, Mohammed said that Grave Consequences await anyone who flouts court orders. Mohammed who was represented by the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho, also said vowed that justice must be served without fear or favour.

“I will like to assure you that as you embark on this important voyage of national rebirth and reinvigoration through effective, people-oriented legislation, the judiciary is solidly behind you,”.

“Since our role is strictly limited to the interpretation of the laws of the land, we will not leave any stone unturned in that respect. You can rest assured that you already have a good and dependable ally in the Nigerian judiciary.”

“We will on our part, as usual, vigorously pursue the observance of the rule of law by all citizens. There is no sacred cow anywhere, as no one is above the law, no matter his or her position in society. Justice must be served without fear or favour. Every law of the land must be obeyed. Let me assure everyone present here that the consequences of disobeying lawful court orders will be too grave to bear.”

“We all should gird our loins to do our constitutionally assigned duties with due diligence so that Nigeria can be the pride of everyone”.

The warning comes amidst criticism against the federal government that has continued to detain some Nigerians freed by the courts.
