CCT Grants Onnoghen Bail, Adjourns Trial Till March 11



The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has adjourned the case of non-declaration of assets involving the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, till March 11, 2019.

Prior to the adjournment of the case, Onnoghen was granted bail on self-recognition as he finally attended his trial at the CCT on Friday.

The embattled CJN had failed to show up at the CCT since it commenced the trial.

Consequently, on February 13, the CCT Chairman Danladi Umar ordered his arrest.

Umar issued the warrant to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest Onnoghen and bring him to the tribunal unfailingly on Friday (today).

He also directed the Director of the Department of State Services (DSS) to join in arresting the suspended CJN.

Onnoghen is facing trial over alleged failure to declare some of his assets to the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
