The National Judicial Council has given Justice Walter Onnoghen and the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Mohammed (CFR), seven days to respond to different petitions written against them.
The NJC gave the ultimatum on Tuesday during an emergency meeting which was presided over by a former president of the Appeal Court, Justice Umar Abdullahi.
In total, the NJC considered four petitions including one against the Chairman of the Code Of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Umar, which was referred to the Federal Judicial Service Commission (FJSC) which is the appropriate constitutional body empowered to deal with it.
The NJC is to reconvene on February 11, 2019.
