Justice Onnoghen shuns Code of Conduct Tribunal sitting again

The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen, on Tuesday failed to appear before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) sitting in Abuja over allegations of fraudulent declaration of assets.


The tribunal has begun the day’s sitting in Onnoghen’s absence, with a consortium of senior lawyers again appearing for him.


The defendant had approached a Federal High Court to challenge the jurisdiction of the tribunal to hear the case. His counsel also told the court that the defendant was not properly served with the court summons.
