BREAKING! FG Orders Freezing Of CJN Onnoghen's Accounts
The troubles are far from over for embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.
The office of the Attorney-General of the Federation has directed the Nigerian Intelligence Financial Unit (NFIU) to freeze his bank accounts.
A copy of the letter was sent to Bounce News by the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) on Wednesday evening.
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) said it has uncovered yet another dastardly plot by the Buhari led APC government to harm the Chief Justice of Nigeria for refusing to compromise the composition of the post 2019 election Supreme Court Appeal Tribunal.
Opposition Coalition said it was in possession of evidence of meetings and call records of APC chieftains behind the ongoing attempt to force the CJN out of office and will be releasing them after Wednesday’s documents release.
“This onslaught on the judiciary is as undemocratic as it is unconstitutional. This is capable of further derailing our democracy as such brazen violation of the Constitution is only tantamount to treason.
“’With the happenings in the last 48 hours and the insistence of the Presidency to either get the CJN to comply or be removed from office, we hereby notify the nation that the life of the Honourable CJN, Justice Walter Nkanu Onnoghen as well as those of his family members is not safe.
“The situation will very quickly descend into compromising the security of the CJN. The APC govt views the resistance of the CJN to the plot to hijack the Supreme court as the only piece that has not been fixed in its grand design to rig and manipulate the 2019 general election for President Muhammadu Buhari and APC chieftains,” the CUPP said in an accompanying statement.
More details soon.
