The Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, has received a fresh order to probe the erstwhile Chief Justice, Tanko Muhammed over the allegations of corruption raised against him by some justices of the Supreme Court.

Fourteen Justices of the Supreme Court had recently levelled allegations of corruption against Tanko Mohammed, which he denied.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, had then mandated the Committee led by Senator Opeyemi Bamidele to probe the allegations levelled against the ex-CJN and the crisis rocking the judiciary.

The committee chairman, Opeyemi Bamidele said his team was taking steps to look into the matter as directed by the President of the Senate by making arrangements to interface with relevant stakeholders both at the Bar and on the Bench.
