The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has convicted the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen and has banned him from holding any public office for 10 years.  

Onnoghen will be removed from office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).  

In Today’s ruling, the CCT also directed that all monies in the account will be seized and fortified to the Federal Government based on the fact that he failed to show the tribunal how he acquired the monies in the account.

The tribunal ordered the forfeiture of the five accounts which the defendant failed to declare as part of his assets and also ordered the forfeiture of the money in the five accounts which Onnoghen allegedly failed to declare to the Federal Government.
