Politics Onnoghen absent as CCT adjourns his trial till Feb 13 - The Cable


Jadesola Oshin
The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has adjourned the case against Walter Onnoghen, suspended chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), till February 13.

The adjournment was sequel to the application of Adeboyega Awomolo, counsel to Onnoghen. The ex-CJN was absent at the tribunal like he was on previous occasions.

Aliyu Umar, counsel to the federal government, did not object to the Awomolo’s application.

While Onnoghen challenged the jurisdiction to entertain the matter, the federal government counsel asked the tribunal for an interlocutory order to “cement” an earlier order given by the CCT chairman.
