This is not a good development. Opposition would politicize this move as an act against the south. Even if there are issues, FG should have waited till after the election before filling any case. The timing is not right at all.

Are you complaining, wailing or in siviahh pains?


Buhari knows that Atiku will defeat him so he's preparing the ground to remain in power. He has finished with INEC by appointing his niece in that sensitive position, now it is the turn of the judiciary. The Army, Police, DSS are all caged.

They are free too, it is a corrupt community whose number 1 Lawyer President is also being accused of corruption after rigging the election that made him NBA president by depriving many lawyers from voting. Just like everything in this country corruption has inflitrated deep into its heart. The earlier PMB understands criminals never make pro-legal laws the better he can confront the criminality in the system.
Buhari is a criminal himself and as such cannot judge any criminal. Has he declared his own?

This useless man that has been selling Judgements to Wike, and PDP since 2015....is about to go down...

He made sure Saraki got away with corruption case...

Idiot in Judiciary!
Idiotic and Incompetent executive that refused to obey the rule of law, they convict a perceived enemy before the law courts, is that one executive? Criminal don't fight criminal.

Buhari is bent on doing away with anyone or anything that might be an obstacle to his doomed 2nd term ambition.

Come february, patriotic Nigerians must unite to do away with Buhari before he takes us to the dreaded 'next level'.

They want to still quench out the only prominent southerner in this satanic govt.Buhari never publicly decleared his net worth/assets as he promised.

The VP(#5B NEMA scandal), AGF, EFCC boss,Obono-Obla, have all been gravely implicated in numerous corrupt acts but the hausa-fulani presidency cabal have kept them in position. Abdulrasheed Maina, Abba Kyari, Kemi Adeosun, Lawal Babachir, Lawal Babachir, Mikanti Baru etc are all free men today.

VP Osinbajo took courage to make Onneghen's appointment but Buhari/cabal have never been happy hence it's time for another aboki to take over.

laugh @ a lots of southern idiots who say the Buhari led APC government is the best to happen to Nigeria.


The plan is to use the Judge as a Plan B, if it goes to election tribunal. If their man is there, then that’s the judiciary covered.

Buhari is completely destroying Nigeria’s democracy and fragile institutions. Blatantly. But we know this was him. What is shocking are the southerners supporting him.

I doubt the veracity of this breaking news. It's unusual for this govt to resort to arm-twisting tactics for an issue that is purely judicial. I will rather wait and see.

…. To be Arraigned on Criminal Charged

The Federal Government has declared war against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen asking him to immediately vacate his exalted office as Head of the Nation’s judiciary over alleged sundry asset declaration issues.


In a move to force Justice Onnoghen out of office, the Federal Government will on Monday January 14, 2019 arraigned the CJN before the Justice Danladi Yakubu led- Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja on charges of failures to declare his assets as required by law and for operating Bank Domiciliary Foreign Currency Accounts.

The charge sighted against Justice Onnoghe has already being filed and served on him last Friday at his official residence in Abuja preparatory for his appearance at the tribunal.

The Federal Government among others is accusing Nigeria’s Head of the Judiciary of refusal to declare his assets in breach of the provision of the Code of Conduct Bureau Act.

He is also being accused of maintaining Domiciliary foreign currencies account which comprised Dollars Account, Pound Sterling Account and Euro Account which are alleged to be contrary to relevant laws, especially for public office holders.

Justice Nnoghen whose appointment suffered unprecedented delay by President Muhammadu Buhari over undisclosed issues may be the first CJN in Nigeria to be arraigned for criminal charges by the Federal Government.

Apart from putting the Chief Justice in the dock on Monday, PRNigeria learned that motion on notice is to be filed against him praying the tribunal to order him to vacate office and recuse himself office so as to prevent alleged interference in his arraignment and trial.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria names withheld has been engaged by Federal Government to lead the onslaught against justice Onnoghen, while PRNigeria could not ascertain names of those who will lead the defence team for CJN.

However, it is gathered that eminent lawyers have volunteered to put their services at the disposal of Justice Onnoghen in the bid to rescue him from the claws of the government.

It would be recalled the President of the Senate of Nigeria, Dr. Bukola Saraki was in 2015 shortly he emerged the Head of the Legislature arraigned at the tribunal but the charges against him were quashed and he was discharged and acquitted by the tribunal on the ground that the charges against him by government were based on hearsay that could not stand in the face of the law.

Saraki’s discharge and acquittal was upheld by the Supreme Court under the leadership of Justice Onnoghen.

The NJC eventually dismissed the same erring judges justifying the actions of the executive.

The National Judicial Council (NJC) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to dismiss two judges accused of corruption by the anti-graft agency, EFCC.

The affected judges are Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court and James Agbadu-Fishim of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria.

PREMIUM TIMES reported the corruption allegations against both judges with Mrs Ofili-Ajumogobia already being prosecuted by the EFCC

This persecution is not unconnected with the obvious loss of APC in River state.

I remember that the COAS Lt General Tukur Buratai was accused of acquiring properties abroad aming others. It was swept under the carpet.

Former SGF Babachir Lawal was held sway for over 6 months upon tangible evidence against before his suspension and eventual removal.

And on and on.

I want to ask really, is it that only the people of South East and South South are corrupt and quick to run fowl of the extant laws of the federation?

A domiciliary foreign currency account is not the same as a foreign account.
you can have a foreign currency account in First bank.it is different from having account in lets say HSBC.

This is exactly why some people elected Buhari. Never had a CJN been subjected to the same laws they so easily pervert.

I'm sure those dollar accounts contain sizable "contributions" from Sarakiri and Athiefku.

cooking up a senseless comment to make right?

Hope this is not true, the man always had a question mark on his head. But maintaining a foreign account is just the dumbest thing he could have done.
Those who are to judge have become the number 1 law violators . This is the same judiciary PMB is supposed to rely on for prosecuting corruption.

Not feoregn accounts but domicidiary account in Nigeria.
Same FG gives them FX for seminars and events abroad. Do they expect them to keep it in their houses?
