Onnoghen trial

The Coalition of United Political Parties national spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, in a statement said the CUPP had uncovered plan by the EFCC to arrest Onnoghen today.

“The secretariat of the CUPP has uncovered the latest plot by the Presidency to arrest the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen today (Wednesday) being February 6, 2019 and immediately commence their final descent to infamy by forcing him to resign at gunpoint.

“The latest recruit in this plot against the CJN being the Chairman of the EFCC has been given the mandate to execute this plot and has been told there would be no margin for error as the CJN must resign from office or from life one way or the other,” Ugochinyere claimed.

But the acting spokesman for EFCC, Tony Orilade, said he was not aware of plans to arrest Onnoghen.

“I don’t have any information on any plan to arrest him. I am not aware of anything like that,” he said.

In a related development, the CUPP on Tuesday alleged that it had uncovered a plan by the Federal Government to force Onnoghen to resign “at gunpoint.”

It said the decision was taken after  Onnoghen turned down “all mouth-watering offers” made to him.

Ugochinyere disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.
