Abuja - The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmoud Mohammed and other judges of the various courts are yet to receive their January salaries.
Over 600 judges of the Supreme Court Justices, justices of the Court of Appeal and all Federal and state High Court judges are being owed according to investigations.
The development has affected workers in the Judiciary in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal Federal High Court, National Industrial Court and the National Judicial Council.
Only workers in the state Judiciary in the 36 states have been paid.
The 600 judges affected include Supreme Court(15), Court of Appeal(85), Federal High Court(88) and National Industrial Court(19).
Most of the affected judges are said to be displeased with the development as the law forbids them from engaging in any trade.
