We did not raid Onnoghen’s House – EFCC
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC ) yesterday described as “untrue and evil”, reports in some quarters that its personnel had invaded the Abuja residence of Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.
Spokesman of the commission Tony Orilade yesterday told Nigerian pilot in Abuja that the fake news “ is being spread by evil men and women to get evil results.”
It may be connected to the halting of Onnoghen’s trial by the Federal High Court Abuja yesterday.
The court had asked the Federal Government to put on hold plans to arraign Onnoghen before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
The Federal Government had, through the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), filed six counts of non-declaration of assets charges against Onnoghen.
However, ruling on two separate ex parte applications, Justice N.E Maha, ordered parties to maintain status quo until January 17, 2019 for hearing.
