The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, said on Wednesday that he was not aware of his reported ongoing investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
He, however, assured the public that he had nothing to hide and was open to investigation.
A statement by the CJN’s Senior Special Assistant (Media), Mr. Awassam Bassey, was responding to a report in The PUNCH on Wednesday which indicated that the CJN’s name was on the list of high-profile persons being investigated by the EFCC as of August 2017.
The PUNCH had reported that the list was sent by the EFCC to the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice last month.
