Eight new Justices of the Supreme Court were Friday sworn in by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad at the Supreme Court in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
Justice Muhammad warned the newly appointed justices of the apex court to shun extraneous considerations while discharging their duties.
The justices, who were recently elevated from the Court of Appeal bench, comprise seven men and one woman, as well as five appointees from the North and three from the South.
They include Lawal Garba (North West), Helen Ogunwumiju (South West), Abdu Aboki (North West), and Mohammed Saulawa (North West).
Others are Adamu Jauro (North East), Samuel Oseji (Souty South), Tijani Abubakar (North East), and Emmanuel Agim (South South).
The recent inauguration of the judicial officers has raised the number of justices of the Supreme Court from 12 to 20.
