CUPP Accuses Presidency Of Planning To Arrest Onnoghen

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has raised an alarm over alleged plans by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest Justice Walter Onnoghen.

CUPP, in a statement by its first national spokesperson, Imo Ugochinyere, said it has uncovered the plan by EFCC to arrest the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria on Wednesday (Today).

“The secretariat of the CUPP has uncovered the latest plot by the Presidency to arrest the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen tomorrow (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.

Naija News also earlier reported on Tuesday that CUPP said that it has uncovered a plan by the Federal Government to force Justice Walter Onnoghen, to resign “at gun point.”

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

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.
