The federal government has stopped the immediate past Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, from travelling and also seized his international passport.
Onnoghen was convicted in April for not declaring his assets by the Code of Conduct Tribunal. Onnonghen’s passport was seized by immigration officers in November 2019, when he was travelling to Ghana with his wife and daughter.
An internal report issued by the Nigeria Immigration Service stated that: “On November 11, 2019, retired Honourable Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, was attempting to travel to Accra, Ghana. He was in company with his wife, Nkoyo, and daughter.
“His passport, with number A50445233, was flagged because Justice Onnoghen’s name was on the watch list. The passport is currently in custody of the NIS.”
