The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA) has said the resignation of Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad as Chief Justice of Nigeria was not enough to clear him of corruption allegations levelled against him by the 14 justices of the Supreme Court.

HURIWA, in a statement, asked for the immediate arrest, investigation and, if culpable, prosecution of the retired CJN by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).

Though Muhammad denied allegations of corruption, HURIWA had earlier asked the National Judicial Council (NJC) and the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to probe him over the complaints by the Supreme Court justices.

HURIWA, however, applauded the swift action of President Muhammadu Buhari in swearing in Justice Olukayode Ariwoola as the acting CJN.
