Nigeria’s Chief Justice Walter Onnoghen has been convicted of falsely declaring his assets.
His suspension over the charges by President Muhammadu Buhari in January, weeks before the presidential election, caused a political storm.
President Buhari was accused of meddling with the judiciary in case the outcome of the election was challenged in court.
Justice Onnoghen was found guilty of hiding the extent of his wealth and has been banned from office for 10 years.
The case was heard by the Code of Conduct Tribunal, which was set up to tackle corruption allegedly committed by public officials.
The law requires senior civil servants and government officials to declare their assets before taking office as a way to monitor corruption.
