Onnoghen: Extend corruption probe to other judges, SANs tell Buhari

Judge Banging a Gavel in a Courtroom

A group of Senior Advocates of Nigeria, under the aegis of justice reform project, have said the reported voluntary resignation of Justice Walter Onnoghen should not be the end of the corruption allegations leveled against him.

They said that, given the gravity of the allegations against the suspended justice Onnoghen and his admission, the law should be made to take its course to show that it respects no one.

The SANs called on President Muhammadu Buhari to subject all other judges to the same type of probe that Mr. Onnoghen went through, so as to fish out all other judges living above their legitimate means.

In a statement today, the Justice Reform Project (JRP), which consists of about 20 sans, said it is important for President Buhari to take this step in order to convince Nigerians that Mr. Onnoghen’s trial was not a politically-motivated witch-hunt and had no ethnic colouration.
