Godwin Tsa, Abuja
The Code of Conduct Tribunal has stood down proceedings till 1pm to deliver ruling in the no-case submission made by the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.
Earlier in his submission, Onnoghen who has urged the tribunal to discharge and acquit him of the charges against him, accused the Tribunal of not following its set Standard Operation Procedures in instituting the case against him.
Onnoghen is being arraigned at the CCT following a charge against him brought by the Code of Conduct Bureau in January.
The CCB accused Onnoghen of failing to declare his assets from June 2005, after he became a Justice of the Supreme Court till December 2016, two months after the Federal Government raided the homes of several judges, including those of the Supreme Court in October 2018.
