CCT Adjourns Onnoghen's Trial Till February 13

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on Monday adjourned till February 13, the trial of suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The adjournment was sequel to an oral application by counsel to Onnoghen, Chief Adegboyega Awomolo SAN.

Onnoghen is yet to be arraigned on a six count charge bordering on non disclosure of his assets preferred against him by the Federal Government.

The tribunal had last Friday fixed Monday February 4 for the arraignment of the suspended Chief Justice as well as the hearing of all pending applications, shortly after the Court of Appeal in Abuja, dismissed Onnoghen’s motion on notice seeking a temporary stoppage of his trial at the tribunal, pending the determination of his suit challenging the jurisdiction of the tribunal.
