Code of Conduct Tribunal to deliver judgment in Onnoghen’s trial on Thursday April 18th

CJN Walter Onnoghen

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has scheduled Thursday, April 18th as the day it will deliver judgement in the trial of the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Onnoghen has been on trial over the non-declaration of his assets.

Tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar announced the date on Monday after listening to lawyers to the prosecution and defence adopted their final written addresses.

Umar said the court will also, on Thursday, deliver rulings on two applications filed by Onnoghen’s legal team, first challenging the tribunal’s jurisdiction and the other asking the tribunal Chairman to recuse himself from the case.

President Buhari suspended Onnoghen on January 25th over claims that he failed to disclose his assets when he, Onnoghen, came into office in March 2017.
