With three conflicting ex parte order flying out three high courts in three states within a week in the crisis rocking the PDP, Nigeria Chief Justice Tanko Muhammad is mulling sanction.

Muhammad, the chairman of the National Judicial Council, NJC, issued the summons to the chief judges in Abuja on August 30.

The chief judges are to appear before the NJC to explain what warranted the issuance of conflicting orders by courts of coordinate jurisdiction.

Chief judges in Rivers, Kebbi, Cross River, Anambra, Jigawa and Imo states are to respond to the summon.

While the PDP catastrophe occasioned by the judges issuing conflicting order, the practice which predates the Uche Secondus ordeal has forced the CJN to cast the dragnet wider.

The PDP embattled chairman and his enemies led by his kinsman Gov Nyesom Wike within have been darting I and out of court to get one-sided orders.
