Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to the prosecution of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, noting that he was sad about the situation.

He also said President Buhari did not know about the plan to arraign the CJN until Saturday evening.

Osinbanjo said this at the opening of the Online Publishers Conference in Abuja yesterday.

He added that he was sad about the turn of events and regretted the situation where a senior member of his profession was subjected to such judicial process.

Justice Onnoghen is facing six charges bordering on failure to declare his assets and operating a domiciliary account, among other charges.

The charges against him are based on a petition signed by the executive secretary of the anti-corruption research data based initiative, Dennis Aghanya.
