Buhari Wasn’t Aware Of Onnoghen’s Trial Until Saturday- Osinbajo

President Muhammadu Buhari only got to know about the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Saturday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has stated.

He also expressed sadness over the trial of the National President of Nigerian Bar Association, Paul Usoro (SAN).

The Punch reported that while the CJ had been scheduled to face trial at the CCT over the non-declaration of assets, Usoro is standing trial by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on account of payments received from Akwa Ibom governor for job done.

The Federal Government has, meanwhile, ordered the discontinuation of Onnoghen’s arraignment.
