JUST IN: Again, CJN Onnoghen absent as CCT trial resumes
THE Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Walter Onnoghen, was, again, absent, as his trial resumed at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja, on Tuesday.
Counsels to CJN Onnoghen at the inaugural sitting of CCT had defended his absence, arguing that he had not been served summons to appear in court.
Consequently, the CCT ordered that he is properly served, and he was subsequently served summons days after.
However, an Abuja High Court had already ruled against CJN Onnoghen’s CCT trial.
Onnoghen is facing trial over an alleged false declaration of his assets.
