BREAKING: CCT finds Onnoghen guilty, bans him from public office for 10 years, removes him as CJN, Chairman NJC







The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Thursday in its judgment over alleged non-asset declaration against the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, banned him from holding public office for 10 years.
It also removed Onnoghen from office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and chairman, National Judicial Council, NJC, and, confiscated, seized and forfeited all his monies deposited in his Standard Chartered Bank accounts located in Wuse 2, Abuja.
In his judgment, chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar said the monies in the affected five bank accounts were acquired illegally, particularly as Onnoghen was said to have not proved his source of income for the seized monies beyond all reasonable doubts.
He also ordered that the money in the five bank accounts of Onnoghen that he did not declare be confiscated.
It would be recalled that this trial lasted about three months within which period, Onnoghen has been in defence of the allegations of non-asset declaration and maintenance of domiciliary accounts contrary to the provision of the law regarding public officers.
Ahead of the judgement, Onnoghen was also suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, January 24.
