CCT Adjourns Trial Of Suspended CJN Indefinitely

The Code of Court Tribunal on Monday adjourned the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, indefinitely, pending the determination of suit challenging the trial at the Court of Appeal.

The CCT chairman, Danladi Umar, made the announcement after both parties agreed to adjourn the matter.

“In view of the Court of Appeal (order) to stay proceeding, I hereby adjourn the matter sine die pending the termination of the Court of Appeal,” he said.

Mr Onnoghen is accused of not fully declaring his asset after becoming the chief justice.
