Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has suspended the country’s Chief Justice, Walter Onnoghen, three weeks before the general election in which he is seeking a second term in office.

His main challenger Atiku Abubakar called the decision “an act of dictatorship”.

The suspension comes less than 24 hours before Mr Onnoghen is scheduled to swear-in members of election tribunals.

Mr Onnoghen is facing charges at a tribunal relating to failure to declare his personal assets before taking office in 2017.

Nigerian law requires senior civil servants and government officials to disclose personal assets as a way of fighting corruption.
