CJN’s Trial: High Court Restates Order Stopping CCT, AGF, Others To Try Onnoghen

(CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen

A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday restated its order restraining the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) and some others from proceeding with the planned arraignment of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Justice Evelyn Maha restated the order on Thursday at the resumed hearing of the suits brought by the incorporated trustees of two groups – the Centre for Justice and Peace Initiative, and the International Association of Students Economists and Management.

The suits are challenging the propriety of the charge brought against the CJN before the CCT by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

Upon being told that some of the respondents have not been properly served, the judge ordered fresh service of court papers in relation to the suits on the defendants and directed that hearing notices also be served on them.

Justice Maha, before adjourning to January 28 this year restated the order she made on January 14, 2019 directing parties to maintain status quo, still stands.
