Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, Monday absent at the Code of Conduct Bureau Tribunal in Abuja.

He was, however, represented by about 30 Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) among others.

Onnoghen’s defence team of lawyers was led by Chief Wole Olanipekun. Others were Chief Kanu Agabi, Chief Chris Uche, Chief Adegboyega Awomolo, Mrs. Victoria Agabi, Chukwuma-Machukwu Ume, Kehinde Ogunwumiju, Garba Tetengi, Effiong Offiong, Yusuf Ali, Sylva Ogwemoh, among others.

On the other hand, the Federal Government’s prosecuting team of lawyers comprised only one SAN and four other junior counsels. The team was led by a former Director of Public Prosecution in Kano State, Aliyu Umar.

The trial has been adjourned until next Tuesday, January 22, 2019.
