According to the Chairman of CCT, Danladi Umar, Onnoghen was also removed from office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria and Chairman, National Judicial Council (NJC).

Umar ruled that all Onnoghen’s monies deposited in his Standard Chartered Bank account in Wuse 2, Abuja be confiscated, seized and forfeited.

The CCT Chairman held that the monies in the affected five bank accounts were gotten illegally particularly as Onnoghen could not prove his means of income for the seized monies beyond all reasonable doubts.

While reacting to the judgement, Onochie said that others will follow suit.

“BREAKING NEWS. Onnoghen convicted. Banned from holding Public office for TEN Years,” she tweeted. “One down, Many to go! Ma Su Gudu Su Gudu.”
