Breaking: Onnoghen surrenders, attends CCT’s sitting
by Eric Ikhilae, Abuja
The Suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen has arrived the sitting venue of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja where he is expected to answer to a charge of alleged breach of code of conduct for public officers.
Onnghen has consistently shunned the CCT since proceedings opened in the case on January 14 this year.
He instead challenged the tribunal’s jurisdiction and obtained restraining orders form High Courts.
On February 13 this year, the CCT issued a bench warrant for his arrest after running out of patience with the suspended CJN.
