CCT dismisses suspended CJN’s no case submission

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has dismissed the no case submission filed by the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, in the ongoing trial over alleged false assets declaration.

Chairman of the CCT, Danladi Umar, on Friday, held that Justice Onnoghen must enter his defence on Monday, April 1.

Earlier, Onnoghen, accused the Code of Conduct Bureau of not following set Standard Operation Procedures in instituting the case against him.

Onnoghen, who made the allegation through his Counsel, Chief Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN, also said that it was illegal and unconstitutional for the prosecution not to comply with rules by investigating the allegation before filling the case.

The suspended CJN added that what the prosecution filed, were mainly hearsay devoid of the true position of the issue in the assets declaration.

According to him, the allegation on him, were documentary hearsay which is not admissible and should be expunge

Mr. Onnoghen is being tried on a six-count charge brought against him, including false declaration of his assets, following his alleged failure to include some domiciliary accounts managed by the Standard Chartered Bank.

The accounts, created in 2011 and used for the transfer of foreign currencies, were omitted in one of two forms filled on December 14, 2016, by Mr Onnoghen.

According to section 3(d) of the CCB act, the Bureau is empowered to receive complaints about cases of non-compliance with or breach of the act.
