Police officers have sealed the office of the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.

The police also ejected the administrative staff of the CJN’s office on Monday.

Mr Onnoghen was suspended on Friday by President Muhammadu Buhari pending his trial with the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over non-declaration of assets.

“The police have sealed the office of the CJN. Officers and men of the Force went to the administrative staff offices at about 7am and ordered clerical and other staff who were already at their desks to leave after which they locked up everywhere,” a source told www.punchng.com.
