Breaking: Court of Appeal Dismisses Motion Filed by Onnoghen

The Court of Appeal has dismissed the motion filed by Justice Walter Onneghen seeking for stay of proceedings of his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, had on Tuesday filed a suit against the federal government over his suspension.

The appeal was filed before the Court of Appeal by his lawyers: Wole Olanipekun (SAN), Adegboyega Awomolo (SAN), Kanu Agabi (SAN) and James Onoja.

Recall that embattled Onnoghen was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari following an ex parte order issued by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

He based his appeal on the fact that he was not given a fair hearing by the CCT before the order to swear-in Justice Tanko Muhammad was issued. He also questioned the powers of the CCT to do so.
