The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, on Monday, January 28, 2019, adjourned the hearing of suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen’s case indefinitely.

Onnoghen had a non-assets declaration charge filed against him by the federal government.

As hearing of the case resumed today, the chairman of the Tribunal, Danladi Umar, suspended hearing indefinitely stating that the decision to suspend Justice Onnoghen’s trial was based on the order of the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

“Inview of the Court of Appeal order for stay of proceedings and out of respect for the Court of Appeal, the tribunal hereby adjourn this matter sine-die (indefinitely) pending the determination of the Appeal before the Court of Appeal”, Mr. Umar ruled.

Only the CCT Chairman and the third member of the panel, Mrs. Julie Amabo, attended the sitting.
