Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has slammed the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen for his absent at his trial in court.

Onnoghen was suspended by Buhari for failing to declare some of his assets upon his confirmation as CJN.

The Federal Government had arraigned Onnoghen before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on charges bordering on false assets declaration.

The trial which has been ongoing was, however, stalled on Tuesday as

Onnoghen was absent.


The suspended CJN stated that issues of toothache and high blood pressure were his reasons for not appearing before the tribunal.

Reacting in a post on Twitter, Onochie warned Onnoghen to stop insulting Nigeria’s legal system.

She wrote: “Onnoghen absent from CCT over a toothache, high blood pressure

“Me: Ordinary Nigerians who have more than toothache & blood pressure come to courts to answer for their alleged crimes.

“Just take your pills and stop insulting our legal system. You were fine till now.”
