No Raid or $9m Found in CJN Onnoghen’s Home—DSS

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Contrary to reports trending online, no American currency or other foreign currencies were found in apartment of Chief Justice of the Federation (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The Department of State Service (DSS), on Sunday, described as untrue reports on the internet suggesting about $9 million was discovered when the home of the Justice was raided by the security outfit.

PR Nigeria quoted a top security officer with the DSS as saying “The entire report claiming that DSS has found close to $9 million in the account of the Chief Justice of the Federation is complete falsehood and baseless insinuation.

“In fact, there is no single operation or raid at any residence or home of the Chief Justice. The media and the public are kindly advised to ignore such reckless reports.

“It is unfortunate that some mischief makers may go to any length to fabricate stories to cause confusion in the polity.”

Some months ago, the DSS raided homes of some judges, where hard currencies were found.
