Code of Conduct Tribunal has fixed February 4 for hearing over alleged non-declaration of assets by the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

This followed the Wednesday Court of Appeal ruling that failed to stop Onnoghen’s trial.

The February 4 was fixed on Thursday via a correspondence from the Code of Conduct Bureau applying for the resumption of trial of the case.

The correspondence entitled: “Application for resumption of trial of the case of FRN V. Hon. Justice Onnoghen Nkanu Walter Samuel case No: CCT/ABJ/01/19,” was addressed to The Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar.

“The above subject refers. This case came up for hearing of preliminary objection to the jurisdiction of the Tribunal on the 28th of Junuary, 2019 but the Tribunal could not proceed due to the pendency of the case at the Court of Appeal.

“However, in the wake of this afternoon, 30th Junuary, 2019 the Court of Appeal has thrown out the appeal.

“Consequently on the above, we urge the Honourable Tribunal to give us a date for resumption of the trial subject to the convenience of the Tribunal, Most obliged my Lord.”

The correspondence was jointly signed by Musa Ibrahim Usman and Fatima Danjuma Ali.
