The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has finally delivered its judgement in the case of false asset declaration by the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
Onnoghen was found guilty of the six counts preferred against him by the Federal government.
Delivering the judgement on Thursday, the CCT chairman, Danladi Umar, ordered that Onnoghen be removed from the office of CJN and banned from holding public office for 10 years.
He also ordered that the money in the five bank accounts of Onnoghen that he did not declare be confiscated.
On the 4th of April, it was reported that Onnoghen had turned in his resignation after reports that the National Judicial Council (NJC) had written to President Buhari to retire Onnoghen.
According to the letter, the suspended CJN was found guilty of misconduct.
