Suspended Chief of Justice, Walter Onnoghen has been convicted and suspended from holding any public office for 10 years by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Onnoghen will be removed from office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
The ruling which took place today also directed that all monies belonging to Onnoghen in the account will be seized and fortified to the Federal Government. This is due to the fact that he failed to prove to the tribunal how he acquired the monies in the account.
The five accounts which the defendant failed to declare as part of his assets have been ordered by the tribunal to be forfeited.
