The National Industrial Court has reinforced its earlier order restraining the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) from continuing the prosecution of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.
The judge, Justice Sanusi Kado in Abuja on Monday ruled that the tribunal’s chairman, Malam Danladi Umar should act on the order made on January 14 restraining the defendants from further proceeding with the trial against the CJN.
The judge adjourned the matter until Jan. 30 for hearing of motion on notice of the interlocutory injunction in the substantive suit.
The CJN is currently facing a six counts charge of false asset declaration.
