DOCUMENTS: How CCT ordered Onnoghen’s suspension

On Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Walter Onnoghen, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), citing a ruling of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The ruling was unknown to the public. But documents seen by TheCable showed that the CCT issued it on Thursday while acting on a motion ex parte application filed by the federal government.

The application dated January 9 was filed by one James Akpala, an investigator at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

Before it was filed, the CCT had adjourned till Monday, January 28, after ruling that it would proceed with Onnoghen’s trial.
