The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has convicted the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, on false asset declaration.

The CCT Chairman, Mr. Danladi Umar in his judgment which was delayed from Thursday morning till afternoon found Mr. Onnoghen guilty of all six charges preferred against him by the federal government.

Mr. Umar also ordered Mr. Onnoghen’s removal from office and banned him from holding any public office for a decade.

However, Mr. Onnoghen had sent President Muhammadu Buhari a letter of retirement. It is unclear whether Mr. Buhari had accepted it or not as the presidency remains mute on the issue.

Also, the CCT ruled that the monies found in the five accounts Onnoghen allegedly failed to declare be confiscated.
