Suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Walter Onnoghen was found guilty of violating
the code of conduct for public officers on Thursday.

After the judgement, Oonnoghen was visibly angry and lost his temper as he could barely wait to discuss with his lawyers.

He was also seen attending to his orderly with a stern posture while he hurriedly entered into his black jeep.

Onnoghen has been sacked and banned from holding public office for ten years.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) Chairman, Danladi Umar, in a judgment on Thursday, held that the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that Onnoghen is guilty.

CCT says it has jurisdiction to try Onnoghen made false asset declaration by deliberately omitting to declare the five domiciliary accounts he maintained with Standard Chartered Bank, and in which huge deposits were found.

The tribunal after convicting him, ordered among others, his removal from office, barred him from holding public office for the next 10 years and confiscated the funds in the five accounts, which the tribunal said should be forfeited to the Federal Government.
