There are no plans by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest Walter Onnoghen, the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), over allegations of corruption, senior officials of the agency have said.

The social media was awash with reports on Tuesday evening that his house had been raided by the EFCC.

Some reports even alleged that he had been arrested.

Two senior EFCC officials emphatically said the rumour was “untrue”.

Yinka Odumakin, the Afenifere national publicity secretary, had recorded a short video broadcast on social media Tuesday afternoon alleging a raid on the residence of Onnoghen, who had failed to appear before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on Monday over charges of non-declaration of assets.

However, No EFCC operatives was sighted at the CJN’s residence on Tuesday evening as alleged.

The CJN has not been arrested.

His spokesman, Awassam Bassey said that he left Onnoghen’s residence “about 30 minutes ago” and the CJN was at home.

He spoke at 6pm, hours after the raid rumour had gone viral.

Onnoghen attended the 2019 armed forces remembrance day in Abuja earlier on Tuesday.

A high court has restrained the CCT from going ahead with his trial.
