Onnoghen’s suspensuon has since stirred reactions from Nigerians online.

Reacting, Bruce described the suspension of Onnoghen as illegal.

He said it was sponsored by ‘Cabals’ to stop Onnoghen from constituting Election Petition Tribunals.

The Bayelsa lawmaker wrote: “The suspension of CJN Onnoghen is illegal. Period.

“Any pretender allowing President Buhari and his cabal to deceive him into believing that he‘s the new CJN will soon be undeceived.

“It‘s the cabal’s coup to stop Onnoghen constituting Election Petition Tribunals.”
