Police Seal Off Onnoghen’s Office

The police have sealed off the office of Walter Onnoghen, suspended chief justice of Nigeria (CJN). The police stormed the office located at the supreme court premises this morning.

On Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari swore in Tanko Mohammed as the new CJN, pending the determination of the case against Onnoghen at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Onnoghen was suspended on the eve of swearing in members of the 2019 national assembly, governorship and state assembly election petition tribunals which Mohammed did on Saturday.
