Breaking: Appeal Court Dismisses Onnoghen’s Suit Against CCT
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed by suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen seeking stay of execution on his ongoing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
The decision by the appeal court comes one day after the National Judicial Council gave Justice Onnoghen seven days to respond to allegations of false asset declaration.
Onnoghen had approached the court, arguing the CCT had no jurisdiction to preside over the case.
The federal government is prosecuting Onnoghen at the CCT for alleged false assets declaration.
