FG orders NFIU to freeze bank accounts of CJN Justice Walter Onnoghen

The Federal Government has asked the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit to freeze the bank accounts of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

A letter from the office of the Attorney-General-AGF of the Federation says the order was in line with Executive Order 06 on the preservation of assets connected with corruption.

In the document signed by Abiodun Aikomo on behalf of the AGF, Onnoghen’s dollar, pounds, euro and naira accounts with Standard Chartered Bank were requested to be frozen, pending final determination of the case against him at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

Onnoghen is accused of failing to declare the funds in the accounts in his asset declaration form.
