Omokri Reacts To CCT’s Judgment On Onnoghen’s Case

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has criticized the judgment of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) against the former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen, over the alleged non-asset declaration.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal, today banned Onnoghen from holding public office for 10 years, removed him from office as the Chief Justice of Nigeria, and chairman, National Judicial Council, NJC.

Chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, in his judgment, said the monies in the affected five bank accounts were acquired illegally, particularly as Onnoghen was said to have not proved his source of income for the seized monies beyond all reasonable doubts.

Reacting to the judgment, Omokri, in a tweet said Onnoghen was convicted because he is not a member of the APC.

According to him,” ONNOGHEN convicted and banned from public office by the @Buhari administration. MAINA reinstated, then given double promotion and armed guards by the same Buhari government.
