Justice Mohammed, who is the Chairman of the National Judicial Council (NJC), issued the summons to the Chief Judges, on Monday, in Abuja.

The summons indicated that the affected Chief Judges were to appear before the NJC to explain what warranted the issuance of conflicting orders by courts of coordinate jurisdiction.
