Ahead of the emergency meeting of the National Judicial Council (NJC) on Tuesday, the office of the attorney-general of the federation (AGF) has sent a list of criminal allegations against Walter Onnoghen to the body, TheCable can report.

Insiders at the ministry of justice informed TheCable that the bundle contains a number of damaging allegations against the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), including bank statements and title deeds of properties said to have been traced to him.

The figures involved are said to be in billions of naira and several millions of dollars — as well as dozens of houses.

“The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) did not file these criminal allegations against the CJN at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) because it is a separate issue from non-declaration of assets,” a senior official of the ministry told TheCable.
