The Economic Financial and Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, invaded the residence of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
￼This was disclosed by former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on his Twitter page.
Fani-Kayode asked President Muhammadu Buhari to call off the EFCC Operatives from Onnoghen’s residence.
He wrote: “Why have the EFCC surrounded the home of CJN Onnoghen, and why are they seeking to arrest him?
“These people want Nigeria to burn! Buhari call off your dogs before it is too late!
“This is a democracy, and not a gestapo State! In the name of God, let this madness stop.”
Recall, that President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday, reportedly issued an order to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen, to immediately vacate his Office, after allegations surfaced on his failure to declare all his assets, before assuming duty as CJN.
The CJN’s trial at the Danladi Umar-led Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, was expected to commence on Monday, in Abuja, on charges of failure to declare his assets as required by law, and for operating Domiciliary Foreign Currency Bank Accounts, but the CJN refused to appear in court.
