Breaking News: ‘I have not resigned’ – suspended CJN Walter Onnoghen speaks

Embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen who was suspended by President Buhari last Friday, has debunked the rumour gaining traction online on Monday that he has resigned.

Onnoghen, who President Buhari replaced with the next most senior Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Tanko Mohammed, as Acting CJN, debunked the rumour in a statement on Monday.

The statement was signed by his media aide, Awassam Bassey, who described the CJN’s rumoured resignation as “fake news circulated by mischief makers.”

“Mischief makers are still circulating this fake news. Once again, no truth in it whatsoever. The Hon CJN, Hon Justice Walter Samuel Nkanu Onnoghen, GCON, has not resigned,” Bassey said.
