Suspended Nigeria chief justice banned from public office

A tribunal in Nigeria has ruled that the suspended chief justice was guilty of failing to declare his assets.

Walter Onnoghen was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari in January. The move led to accusations that Mr Buhari was meddling with the judiciary in case the outcome of February’s election was challenged in court.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal found the judge guilty of hiding the extent of his wealth and banned him from holding public office for 10 years.
