JUST IN: “We have jurisdiction over your case” – CCT tells Onnoghen

Walter Onnoghen is accused of false assets declaration.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has dismissed the preliminary objection filed by suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Walter Onnoghen to challenge the jurisdiction of the tribunal.

The CCT also dismissed the application by the former CJN calling tribunal chairman Danladi Umar to withdraw from further presiding over the trial on the grounds of bias.

The tribunal is now delivering judgment on the merit of the five counts.

The Onnoghen case is expected to close today.
