Finally, Embattled CJN Onnoghen ‘resigns’

Suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, has resigned, the News Agency of Nigeria is reporting.

Mr Onnoghen’s resignation follows the recommendation of the National Judicial Council for his early retirement.

The recommendation was sent to President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.

In its public statement, the NJC said that it had reached a decision on allegations of fraud against Mr Onnoghen and the acting chief justice of Nigeria, Muhammad Tanko.

But multiple sources confirmed to Premium Times newspaper that the decision reached by the council included a recommendation for Mr Onnoghen’s compulsory retirement.
