The embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen who was a few days ago suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari, on alleged case of undeclared assets, has refuted reports making around that he has resigned his position as the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
Justice Walter Onnoghen who has since been replaced by Justice Tanko Mohammed from Bauchi state released a statement signed by his media aide Awassam Bassey where he said the news of his resignation is a mere rumour and should be disregarded as the rumour is a piece of “fake news being circulated by mischief makers.” he said
“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,” he said about Justice Walter Onnoghen
