NJC deletes Onnoghen From Membership List

The National Judicial Council (NJC) has removed the name and image of convicted Justice Walter Onnoghen from its current members’ list on its website.

Onnoghen was last week convicted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) for violating the Code of Conduct and Tribunal Act, by refusing to declare the five accounts he has with the Standard Chattered Bank, located at Wuse II, Abuja.

Apart from his removal from the office of the CJN and chairman, National Judicial Council (NJC), the Tribunal, in its judgement also ordered the forfeiture of the money in all the accounts, running into millions in both naira, dollars and pounds sterling and he was also barred from holding public office in the next ten years.
